I would LOVE to attend one of their auctions. Your shots are nice. There's some inconsistancy in the WB on these that's youv'e posted here though. That's my biggest gripe.

The lighting was VERY harsh, hard to get it right it was very harsh metal Halide or High pressure sodium and none of the WB in the 70D handled it well, I was trying to tweak it in post.

I think using a custom WB, or several custom WB's as you moved throughout the venue, would have helped you out instead of using the built in WB settings. Would it have taken a bit more time? Yes, but it would have help keep things consistant.

I used Auto but was shooting in Raw so I had the ability to change it. However that is where the consistency gets lost, even when I did a sync in lightroom of the changes I made, because the lighting was so inconsistent it just messed them all up, so I reset and worked on each individually.

That's the thing though. Even if you're shooting in RAW, the more you get correct in camera, the better off your photos are going to be. A custom WB would have corrected for the light right then and there, where as now you're trying to correct it after the fact but since the light was inconsistant the info that the camera got for the exposure weren't "correct" WB-wise so of course syncing in LR is going to make things worse. Syncing in LR assumes that the shots were all shot in the same light.

As part of a photography class I took a few years ago we took 2 shots in RAW, one outdoors and one indoors, using the same WB setting in camera. Then we took them into post and batch processed each one using the same WB setting...it did exactly what you described. The assumption was that since we shot in RAW and we could tweak the WB later in post we'd be able to get consistant WB simply by making the WB all the same in post. Didn't happen. It showed the importance of getting it right in camera from the get-go (even in RAW) and especially when the light is constantly changing.

What does a FF camera have to do with the price of tea in China? A FF camera won't magically make your photos any better.

Well not in that sense. I know that most of my issues are due to inexperience. Thank you for the help.

I meant wanting the FF sensor for the better handling of the lower aperture glass as opposed to the APS-C.

Looking at your gear listed I wouldn't say that a FF would handle your faster lenses better than an APS-C camera. An argument might be made for L-lenses...but that's a big MIGHT. I get great results from my red rings on my cropped 50D.
