    white balance in a church

    Hello,
    First time visiting in the forum. How would one do the white balance in a shoot from the balcony of a church? Do the white balance on stage with the card and camera or hold the card on stage and zoom in from the balcony?

    Hi Aroski

    You can simply stay on the balcony, frame the sort of shot you need and then hold a piece of white paper a couple of inches from the camera lens and do a manual balance.

    Do remember that this will only work if the paper is in the same (kind of) lighting as the 'target'. If the lighting is completely different near the camera, you will need to zoom on white in the proper spot. When matching cameras, the best thing to do is to zoom all of them in on the same piece of white placed in the lit target area.

    If I'm on my own, I'll go down to the stage and do a white balance and than go up to prepare myself up on the balcony. I feel 'safer'. But if you want the 'effects' of the stage lighting (for whatever reason), then I would do what Chris does.
