Irishman I am doing progress photos of construction in my Country Club. Put camera in corner - use Manfrotto panorama accessories. Using "auto" and 18 mm. Nikon. Two pictures per room but "white balance is "automatic"". However big windows so room is "in shade".

NEXT: To do better job, set on "M" or "A" at f/8. Autofocus works on "brighter" image but in dark area the camera "searches" to focus
and no mattr what "autofocus" A,S or C the camera cannot "achieve" focus. By using these settings I can set the "white balance" to "daylight" and since the room walls are light tan the result is
very natural, i.e no "bluishness". I have not tried "shade" or "cloudy". Panorama images are made using Panorama Facotry which
works very well...

Switching to "manual" focus works, but I would like the "autofocus" to prevail. Is it the 18mm lens? Nothing serious - it is volunteer and "routine photography" just to show constructin progress..

IRISHMAN Really hot here in Las Vegas !!
