Hi Master Deakins, I'm a little confused about White Balance
For example, when we want the warm color of tungsten lights. Is it better to set the white balance to about 3200 and then reach that warm color at Color correction process or manipulate the white balance while shooting? Thanks a lot

You can choose to shoot at 3,500 or 4,000K if you can't get the colour you want through lighting. I will sometimes do that as long as I am not affecting a secondary color that is in the frame or I am affecting that color in relationship with the primary one to give me an overall look that i am happy with. There is no hard and fast rule, just what works for you.
