Re: newbie white balance/color correction

I don't actually have any paraticular shot in mind. I was just wondering since you can use a grey card to set the white balance on multiple shots, even those that don't have a grey card in them, could you use some other item in the scene to match color between two different lighting set ups.

But I just realized that when you use the grey card, you do have to keep the lighting the same between shots, so I now realize that if the light changes you couldn't use an item that shows up in both shots.

I was actually thinking about getting a picture of someone close up, and then matching the color to them on stage, with completely different lighting, but I'm thinking that would not work ----- thanks anyways guys
