(btw, I did 4 different guys at this shoot). Ya, I did it the (stupid) lazy way of simply setting the WB to Flash, instead of doing a custom WB. For some reason, they all turned out quite a bit more yellow than this final edit for web. Ibounced the flash off the 9ft high (off white) ceiling. Want opinions on skintone. I know, everybody had slightly different skintones, but does this look overly yellow to you, or is it ok?
In NC4, I did a "Calculate Automatically", then tweaked more from there.
Also, I learned 2 valuable lessons here. always bring spare consumables, and do a custom WB! My Flash batteries went dead 3/4 way through the shoot, and I didn't bring spares, thinking this would be a quick hit & run deal. They were barely used rechargables. I thought I actually had to go home for the spare SB800, since I thought it might've been the SB800 at fault. The reason for thinking I had to return the 6 mi home, was the head pro gave me 4 (apparently well used) AA's, and the SB continued to malfunction, and not fire. So, back home, I put some known good batteries in it, then it worked just fine.
Didn't exactly leave a great impression with the head pro. As I mentioned earlier, he's (was)considering me for an occasional position as an event photog. Dammit!
