I just bought Passport color checker and shot the card in the same lighting as before and visually checked the screen to card. All looked perfect !!
Lightroom presets. None Camera presets. None other than WB. WB has been set to the color temp of the light bulbs and I have seen the shift on the beige/oranges to bright yellow. I have also set the WB in the camera to the WB reading that I get in Lightroom after I do the eyedropper on a photo of the WhiBal card. Same results.
The WB in Lightroom is created with the use of the WhiBal card in the first shot...
