Thanks for your insights.
By photometry I meant : do I need to set up the “ISO/shutter/aperture” when I take the white paper photo for the custom white balance settings? Or can I use, per example, the automatic settings of my camera? Obs: I have a DSLR, so there is no white balance button (I need to take a photo then go to menu and set up).

Another thing: Let’s say I’m on a distance from my subject that even if I zoom my lens to the maximum I can’t frame only the white paper/card.
That actually happened once (I was shotting a lecture, the guy was around 10 meters away from me – and I couldn’t stay closer). What should I do on these cases?
