p.3 #1 · How much does WB matter?

Not really debating the ease in which to set WB. It's easy, no doubt. But, if you're going to fix it or adjust it later, why even worry about it at all?


Because I usually only adjust WB in about 20% of my images (mostly getting ready) and because I usually hate the WB auto chooses and I want to see right there in the moment what my image looks like with the WB I like.

What K do you set it for when the lights are on and there's a window in the room? Some people hanging by the window and some over on the couch by the lamps? Moments happening in both locations?


That's easy, in that case I'll just shoot a very wide B&W
Maybe our style of shooting is just different, I'm not really a fast snapper kind of girl (and if I did I promise you WB would be the least of my concerns ) and most of the time I don't really feel the need to be. If I'm in a room with multiple things happening in different areas, like mom getting ready at one corner and bride getting ready at the other, I will just shoot one thing at the time, go to the bride get all my camera setting right, my composition, angle etc, take a few shots and then move on and do the same with mom, and if something really interesting happens really fast with the bride while I'm shooting mom then I'll do almost the same as you, leave the WB as is and fix it in post, but like I said most of the time I don't feel that rushed that I can't spare a second or two to move my eye from the viewfinder, also I find extreme fast variables lighting temp situations are not that common in most of the wedding day.

So, you sacrifice composition and action for white balance?

Beyond truth. I push 500 kelvin from correction nearly 100% of the time.

Where did you get that from ??
I set WB when I have time, if I don't have time I leave it as is (from the time I previously set it), most of the times I have plenty of time.nothing is being sacrificed.

Why leave it at auto in times you do have time to set it up like you want it?
You know if you screwed up you can always fix it in post like you would in auto so what are you so afraid of?

If you had read my previous posts, you'd have noticed that I said I do.

Yeah, I tend to try to concentrate on the entire scene, not just an area of the room. I look at the whole room and see what's going on.
