Subject: Re: RAW and Kelvin Temp.

when you heat a black body so the final color is daylight (combination
of sun and skylight) why is Kelvin for daylight temp less than shade?
5500K VS 7500K.

Shade is a darker color than white and would it not require less heat
(less Kelvin)?

This is a common source of confusion. Cool (blueish) colors actually correspond to a higher black body temperature, and warm (reddish) colors to a lower temperature.
