Finding correct white balance
Jan 2, 2012

I'm sitting at a car dealership waiting for maintenance to be done. Taking some photos and can't seem to find the right white balance. Lights are fluorescent but none of the settings seem "right". Setting WB to Auto Is pretty close but still seems off to some extent.

What is the best way to determine correct WB? Is Auto the best way to go unless you are 100% positive of light temperature?

I'm going to to an Auto Show next week so lighting should be all over the place. Leave it on Auto?
