    To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button location on the right-hand side of the phone.
    This will reveal the lock screen.

    On the home screen, look for the Lumia Camera tile.
    It is a purple tile with a white camera inside. If the Lumia Camera tile is not pinned to the lock screen, swipe left and find it in the applications menu. Press the tile to open the application.

    Once the camera is loaded, press the white video camera icon to switch the camera into video mode.
    We then want to change the white balance. The need to change the white balance depends on the amount of light. Depending on the quality of light or the environmental conditions you are in, you may need to change the white balance. Light is very different if it comes from an artificial source such as a light bulb, compared to the sun or a bright moon. It also depends on if you're indoors or outdoors.

    The next option is a cloud icon.
    The phone is trying to create more light and let more light in because the conditions are not so good. The camera looks more yellow than when it is set to auto.

    The last option is a light bulb icon.
    Experiment with these and try them with different situations. If the colors are not quite as full or as powerful as they could be, try changing the light balance and seeing what the results are.
