In camera metering is generally about the luminance (brightness) of light, more usually that reflected from the subject, white balance is more about the colour of the source light.
Both systems cans be easily confused, metering by light or dark subjects, by lights behind the subject etc, white balance can be confused by the colour of the subject.
Despite the 'it's subjective' crew this is why I think its impoetant to understand how the camera is working, and where it can get things wrong, as this helps you get things right.
I'm sorry, but I believe you didn't understand my question. My point is to understand the way camera works and that's why I asked the question:
Is white balance metering related to light metering or not?
So let's say that before I recompose my image, the frame is filled with some light color (e.g. 2600K) that doesn't appear in the frame once I do the recomposition (e.g. 3000K), but I locked the metering at the first frame. Will AWB change to 3000K or it will remain at 2600K even though the metering is locked?
