|Custom White Balance using ExpoDisc|
While shooting this I realized many folks assume those presets for white balance will give good enough results. Well sometimes they do. They will put you in the ballpark for each type of situation.

It was raining and they really don't have a rainy preset.
The latest version of the ExpoDisc 2.0 comes with warming filters. They are slightly a cyan color of different densities to let you pick how much you want to warm up your image. So without them you get a pure 18% grey and by adding these you warm up the photo just a bit.
You just put the warming gel in the front of the ExpoDisc and then take your reading. This way you can keep a consistent warming to all your photos.
So what should you do? I would advise always doing custom. You can always change it later using Adobe Lightroom if you shot it RAW.
Sometimes the perfect custom white balance maybe not your preference in the end.
