| p.1 #1 · How much does WB matter? |
I remember my first photo course and the professor drilling into our heads the importance of setting the WB in camera. Of course, he also said not to place the subject in the center of a photo, not to clip detail when bumping up contrast, and all sorts of other rules I love breaking nowadays.
But anyway, I rarely ever take my camera off AWB. I always shoot raw and even if the camera gets the WB way off, it seems like in post I'm able to bring it where I need it to be with no harm. Am I missing something? I don't see an advantage in changing it every time you go from shade to sun to indoors to flourescent, tungsten, etc. I like having less things to worry about especially when tackling a wedding so unless someone can make a good case for setting specific WB in camera I'll just keep doing what I do!
