    I use the drop down WB option and adjust by changing the numbers if I don't feel they are correct. I've never used the slider to move left and right to quickly see the different WB options available.

    Change the background to white in preferences, you'll be surprised how that helps with some scenes that don't have a natural white to use as a reference.

    Rock those sliders back and forth, sounds silly but works. I then sync across all images taken in the same light.

    Thanks. The syncing across all images in the same light is fine as long as you're not using auto WB as this can vary slightly from shot to shot. I need to get used to shooting with a set WB I think to make life easier in post.

    I think you're just looking for stuff to whittle about tbh.

    Can't you just wear the lab coat whilst watching Eastenders or something if you're having withdrawal symptoms from it?

    Gone back to the 16-35 on my 750, I was using the Tamron 15-30 for a while but missed using my filter kit and couldn't justify the 150mm kit being so heavily invested in the 100mm kit :( Plus the size of those filters ... Jesus !

    I'm not actually ginger, it's just my cloudy white balance...

    I'm not bitter, I'm hipster.

    My name is David Raynham and I'm a cloudy white balance hipsterholic.

    Yep. Works a treat for me. IF I need to alter it I do it in Lr and it takes less time than what has already been spent in this thread worrying about it.

    Having said that, I don't shoot at night or in darkness so that may have an effect on your situation and require you to want a cooler WB.

    I shoot a lot of panoramas so having a set WB rather than using auto is far better for me.

    Shouldn't make a difference if the light is the same, then the "correct" WB should be the same.

    Also handy is the "match total exposure" option.

    Sooo busy recently, wedding season about to kick off and had quite a few 2018 enquiries recently

    Sort your exposure out for one image of a scene, then highlight the rest of the same batch and select - Settings - Match Total Exposure, and it'll set them all to the same brightness.

    So i need to take my d750 out this weekend for a good test run, barely used it yet due to the weather and other commitments.

    All i've done so far is changed the camera to raw and added the beep for focus. From a picture quality side of things, anything else you recommend doing/changing?
