WHite Balance options versus FLD filters
OK...just made the switch over to digital about a month ago. When shooting under flourescent lights, I used to use an FLD filter. My new camera has white balance compensation....I can set what kind of light I'm shooting in. If I put that on flourescent...do I still need to use the filter? Is it better to use the filter on an auto balance setting? Both? ANyone have expereince with this?
Back in the days of film, I used an FLD and it never looked good. Today, my camera has 5 fluorescent white balance settings plus fine tuning plus presets. No way can I tell which is which for what lights; besides that, everybody mixes bulbs in their fixtures.
I shoot RAW and twiddle until it looks OK to me. I don't think there's another way that works.
