Re: Should WB always be corrected?
i have read photography books that suggest sometimes having the 'wrong white balance' can make ur photos more impactful.
there shldnt be a right or wrong to white balance as it is mainly the taste of preference.
In this case, i think it will be a choice of choosing the ambience or the importance of the skin colour. (personally i think for #1, the skin color is too warm)
Ideally, you can make the photo cooler to correct the skin tone, but keep a bit of the ambience.
I think most important would be consistency of WB for your entire set of photos else it will look weird.
Having said all that, you have to ask the clients what they want. They might have a 'right' or 'wrong' answer for you in terms of WB.
Hope this helps.
