Color balance across the set

Hey everyone,

Im quite curious about this topic. How do you work on sets of images from phootshoot ? lets say you have a set of 30 images from one location (outdoor for example) with various light situation (shadow, direct sunlight, cloudy). What would be your tips in processing images the way, skin tone, overall feel and white balance in the images are same on all images ? Pre reading of white balance before each image is taken ? most adjustments in camera raw and then applying to a whole set and then small adjustments in ps ? rather everything in ps ?

Im looking to get into a discussion, as i think its quite common issue for us when dealing with whole sets of images.

Thanks
Thomas

Automate what you can and sweat over the rest! If there are different light conditions it won't be possible to do everything with one click. My normal workflow would be correct and adjust in RAW and save the general image settings (in fairness I tend to work in fairly consistent lighting setup), take it in to PS and then any major changes like cross processing or colour changes in general save again as a preset.

It is not a one click solution, but it does make the task a little easier. I would be interested in hearing what others do.

Re: Color balance across the set

if you have one session the "light conditions" are almost always the same.

load the images in LightRoom, create a recipe, apply to all, make additional adjustments to each img if necessary and go from there.

Yeah, that is easy, but the question is about photo session in various lighting (outside where weather (lighting) may change). is it possible at all ?

What about using white balance adjustment technique where you find natural gray color using threshold ? would that be accurate enough to use on all images ?

shooting grey card with model before each light change ?
