It all depends on the color of light you use. If you use 6000 K lights, set the camera for 6000K in manual mode. If your lighting does not have a controlled color, you can calibrate your camera to match it using one of the tools like the x-rite color checker passport. That creates a calibration valid for the lighting conditions used for that specific case and sets Lightroom to make the corrections as the photo is imported. Otherwise, with Lightroom, you can also manually set the color adjustments made on import to suit your taste.I'm photographing some documents. Which white balance should I use, landscape or portrait? Neither seems right. They both come across as a little too warm. Or does the color checker have another option for white balance.
hehe yes I was jesting about portrait vs landscape orientation vs portrait vs landscape colour profiles lame jokeI believe he is referring to picture style. It does change the colors as well as contrast and other settings. It is not, however white balance.
There are different version of the X-Rite ColorChecker, or from other brands. Usually they have some neutral gray patches which can be used for post-production white balance.Or does the color checker have another option for white balance.
