Why can’t I use just any white object for white balancing?
White balancing on a piece of paper or another white element in the scene may seem like a simple workaround, but these objects are not neutral under all lighting conditions and certainly not consistent.
An inaccurate white balance will result in color casts and a lack of consistency between lighting conditions, making color corrections extremely time-consuming. It will slow down your post-processing as you attempt to fix the resulting color casts.
