“Why Auto White Balance Isn’t Your Friend”
I don’t get articles like this. I say, shoot RAW, and you’ll never be unhappy with having picked the wrong WB setting at the time of the shot. The article tries to tackle this idea, but gets it wrong, IMO:
However, it’s important to remember that the white balance presets that exist in Lightroom or Photoshop or any editing application are not camera specific.
Lightroom and Photoshop do offer camera-specific profiles that match those of the manufacturer, and you can still tweak them after the fact. Additionally, those tools can use custom profiles, easily created using a color checker to create profiles for your exact copy of a camera.
“Shoot in RAW” is the answer to this question.
