In wedding, you have no time to use grey card or color checker passport. Shoot raw and AWB.

in controlled environment, you can try a grey card and use custom white balance. or to be more accurate a color checker passport.

Makes sense thanks!

I shoot RAW and not worry too much, but still at churches and indoors I often use Kelvin instead of AWB

I have a shoot in a dark church on the 15th so that will really help. Its an ugly yellow and wood dimly lit church where my pics looked horrible last time. Hoping for better luck so anything helps thanks. Here is a horrible pic from last go there....

I tested the Sigma 35mm 1.4 at the Photography Show at the NEC on Tuesday on my 5DII and I was blown away at how sharp it was at f1.4. Looking back at the test shots of the 24L at 1.4 under the same lighting I think I made the right choice and I am now the proud owner of the S35.

Although I have the lens myelf, I keep comming back to this thread to see what it's capable off and to be inspired!

Apart from the obvious low-light capabilities it does the higher apertures very nice as well...

Bought a 5D MkII last week, new Sigma 35mm arrived yesterday :) So, so happy with it, slight Micro Adjustment but perfect now. Pretty much going to be my go-to lens for 90% of my photography, that and my new Canon 135mm f2 that arrived a few days previous. Happy days...

try the kelvin. it will only give you a choice of making the color cooler or warmer.

Already experimenting with it and it seems to make world of difference I just have to get a hang of what kelvin to have in what situation I see there is a Kelvin chart so between trying to memorize it and experimenting on my own I hope to get a hang of it.

Thanks! to me I just see as the reflective light taking over skin tones and whites Blues, yellows and oranges seem to prevalent.. maybe im trippin? ha

or maybe that wasent the best representation, you can see what I mean here if you have time.
