Getting correct white balance for real estate/ interior videography
on Jul 5, 2014 at 12:41:49 pm

I create real estate videos using my Canon 7D and 10-22mm Canon lens. I'm having trouble getting the right white balance.

It varies from room to room depending on amount of natural lights coming through windows and artificial lights.

I set the temperature manually in the camera by look and feel of the room and occasionally use an app on my phone that takes a picture of a white card. This isn't working as when it comes to the edit, everything is slightly off!

What is the best way for me to set the white balance?

Maybe keeping in auto or setting an in camera custom white balance using white paper? or maybe looking to purchase a budget light meter?

Ashley,

Have you tried shooting a grey card and chip chart under the lighting conditions for reference? This way you can set your white point using the grey card when you color correct and everything should fall into place as the grey is a know quality.
