I have a question. when you shoot do you use a color reference card at the beginning of every different light change?
No, I don't have the time or interest. I shoot RAW with one of the presets and do color adjustment later, but I make it easier on myself by using CTO gels on flash when indoors in incandescent light and I already know the colors for sunlight, flourescent, etc. It's also easier to do color adjustment in post when they are all at the same WB preset instead of auto.
what is the color temp of a sunny cloudless day at 4:30PM at Red Rocks in September looking north?
just for reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_temperature
you see I archive items at times for the NPS. color is somewhat critical. so when I shoot. they/we card every shot so that it can be reasonably balanced for accuracy. believe me in the end for you it can and will become the great equalizer in your quest.
