Bear with me folks, I know this may sound ridiculous, but here goes.

I've been reading quite a bit about recommended white balance settings, such as cloudy -3, and so on.

The question I have is that if I am shooting indoors and want to use my flash , how do I calibrate my white meter?

Do I calibrate or tune for the lighting conditions without flash
If I set it for flash, what happens to the portions of the picture area that are not covered by flash
I hope I asked this in an intelligible manner. What I've been doing is to preset whenever I can, using a gray card. I find this accurate, but now that I have to take a series of indoor flash shots, I need to know how one would go about metering in this scenario...for available light or flash?

Any help would be appreciated.
