When shooting HDR images in RAW and adjusting white balance which of the following will work? I will often have a whi-bal card shot using the same HDR sequence as my shots (usually AEB 0, +/-2 EV) to be used to set the white balance correctly. The first method is is how I currently do this but I am looking for a more streamlined way, particularly when sequence of shots are to be stitched in a panorama
1. Open RAW files in ACR, for each set of exposures, e.q., -2, 0, then + 2 EV, go first to the Whi-Bal photo, use the eye-dropper and set WB based on the grey card. Then synchronize all the other photos done at the same exposure setting. Repeat process for the other two exposure settings. Run HDR. (then stitch)
Can this method be used instead and yield accurate results?
2. open all RAW shots in ACR. Set white balance based on one of the three whi-bal shots (e.g., 0 EV). Synchronize all shots at all exposures based on the one white balance correction? Run HDR, etc.
3. Alternative workflow?
