Re: LED panels during morning preps

When you say that you manually white balance do you mean that you do a custom white balance (taking a photo of a white card or using an Expodisc or similar) or just dial in degrees Kelvin? We shoot with Canon DSLRs mainly & have been caught a few times recently with pink/magenta LED lights in receptions & such where we have white balanced to tungsten & then discovered when we go to edit that there is a terrible pink cast to the images. On the recommendation of a colleague I have just ordered an Expodisc & will be using this to custom white balance in future.

Re: LED panels during morning preps

Hey Nigel!

I normally play with my Kelvin degrees on my dSLR to adjust the WB. I'm not very accurate yet at this point but I'm still working on it. However, my mixed lighting issue is still something I need to find a way to work around.

Try setting a custom white balance. Altering degrees Kelvin is only part of the solution to setting the correct white balance as it does nothing for the green/magenta shift. Not so important for daylight/tungsten but very important when there are those wretched pink LEDs.
