A dumb question; In camera RAW; As-shot vs a color temp setting

    Since I got my Canon 300d and Photoshop I've been shooting RAW with
    AWB (avg white balance) set, figuring that I could, from memory,
    remember the light for each shot and pick it.

    Recently I've been setting it to a specific light. Do I use "as shot"
    or the specific color temp in PS RAW?

    I do ad-hoc walking around photography so the light can change from
    shot to shot.

    AWB = Automatic WB so hopefully the camera makes a good guess.
    It shouldn't matter but 'as shot' is less work if you already decided
    correctly while shooting.

    Auto white balance will get you reasonably near accurate white balance.
    The rest is adjustable: that is why you shoot raw.
    More often than not the technically correct white balance may not be the
    optimal white balance for your specific aesthetic purposes.
