    white balance refers to the color tone of the picture. It has nothing to do with ISO, Aperture or Shutter settings. You can correct the white balance of the picture by either using an appropriate filter in-front of the lens, do some settings with your camera, or post processing.

    use a very white paper .

    In this room before you start shooting ( say this museum for example ), aim your camera on this piece of white paper so that then entire image is just WHITE , nothing else. Take a shot of this white image.

    Then go to the menu of your DSLR and then set the custom white balance to this white image.

    You are done

    rest of the shots will be custom white balance to this color temperature for now. Remember to set the WB to another value when you leave this place A simpler way is to shoot in RAW and then adjust the color during post processing. enjoy...

    Setting the WB balance in the camera, and doing the white balancing during post processing, in the end both the end result is the same right?

    Only difference is that one is done by the camera and one is done using computer software.

    The are many times when the WB can't be salvaged by software. Best method is to get it right by doing a custom WB before shooting.

    should have get a toy, or borrow from someone, and shoot it yourself.

    Provided you shoot in RAW.

    Kindly correct the color cast if you shot in raw.
