This question is for those of you that shoot in RAW and adjust WB later in PS. How do you get consistant WB between multiple shots of the same subject?

do your white balance adj by color temp. in RAW. Then for each photo just use the same color temp.

Yeah, that works but only if the subject stays in the same conditions.

It's quite easy when under controlled lighting. Take a pic of a graycard under the light source and then use it the set your WB point. That part is easy.

Under non-controlled lighting it can be a bit different.

In conversion I usually look for a known white point or neutral grey in the photos.

Weddings are usually kind of easy because you can almost count on white being prominent in most photos.

Ah, I was hoping there might be a better way in conversion. That's how I do it too, but was wishing for a quicker and less subjective way.

Well, if you want to go so far as to gel all the light sources... it is quite easy to set WB in post process :-)

Another thing that is worth trying...
If you have photoshop, open up all the shots you want to match with each other and go into Image>Adjustments>Match Color. You can't do more than 1 match at a time and you can only match to another open photo, but it works pretty well in a pinch.
