I have a new D7000. I also bought a couple of cheap WB lenses/filter to read reflective (not incident light). I know how to put the filter on the lens, I know how to find the custom white balance in the menu. But, I am not exactly what to do from there.

Not exactly a newbie. Won 4 awards back in 1958/59 with ASA 10 Kodachrome. I have no problem using Lr 1/2/3/4 to set WB using WhiBal Card, etc.

On Cinco de Mayo, I will be shooting with changing light/changing cameras/changing lenses where it will be intrusive to keep popping a WhiBal Card into the mix. There is also the possibility that I will need to shoot video.

There is something (some step) that I am missing regarding setting the custom balance. A step by step would be helpful.

ABSOLUTELY Accurate White Balance will not be needed. I will be faced with a mix of tungsten, flourescent, one set of lights of which I have no clue, off-camera flash if needed, plus a mix of some shuttered late evening frosted window light. At least I won't have to contend with direct sunlight. I will be rushed. Wish I had said NO!
