how do you set it manually? I thought they were too yellow too, but I was blaming it on really crappy lighting.

press WB, choose one of the two manual settings on the right. press * to evaluate white balance while pointing at something white or photo grey--basically something with "equal" rg and b. then your custom wb is set. there's also a bunch of preset wb settings and you can scroll through them and pick the one that looks best--i've been doing that recently since it's easier, but i think you get get a more professional balance with manual.

I'll definitely play with that some. I do sometimes use the auto. I don't have a strong rationale for why I chose not to this time. Thanx for the help.

Unless it's been changed, the lightbulb in that hallway is pretty old (and fluorescent too, my fluorescent bulbs tend to go a bit yellow when they are older).

yeah, it wasn't great lighting at all, I could tell before we started. But if I'd known about the manual WB adjustment stuff, it might have been better. I only knew about auto and the presets. I knew the other stuff was there, but had never fiddled with it. I don't know how it got to manual, actually. I had thought it was set on auto. Anyway, I can probably fix it a bit in post if I decide i care a whole bunch. I'll end up processing the hell out of them when i do a photosketch anyway.

Damn, I could've changed that lightbulb if I'd known....

no biggee... they'll be fine for a photosketch. If you want better ones, we can take more some other time.
