I am using the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens for real estate photos to get the most content with a wide angle lens. Currently I am shooting indoor shots with blown-out windows using bracketing with the settings below and blending them in Lightroom to achieve the best indoor shot while taming the windows. I am new to learning all the settings and I'm trying to find the sweet-spot for taking indoor shots that will produce the sharpest shot that won't blow-out the windows, keeping my ISO low, and having the least amount of grain yet producing bright enough images. The settings below work for me now, but I find my images a little dark for indoor shots with a little more grain than I would like. Any ideas on how I could maximize my images with the best settings?
Here are my current settings:
Manual Mode, 1/10, f/8, ISO 100, bracketing exposure, image effect - faithful 5200k Daylight, AWB, one shot, 2s, center weight, RAW
