Going to the wedding...

Yes, my sister just did a quick make-up to my daughters and dressed them up before they go to a wedding invitation, so i took the opportunity and took some shots of my daughters, here is one:

Finally i used my new beauty dish, but i hope someone can correct the color, i feel it is incorrect.

The color is a tad warm, ie yellow orange. Add a little blue.

If your worried about color, buy a grey card and shoot a test shoot with it in the picture. Then you can get the correct color balance off the grey card.

Color corrected, then did a little quick something. Lovly looking daughters by the way...

Re: Going to the wedding...

I know nothing about color corrections.. I just eyeball it till it looks OK to me.. but back in the day.. I also used a Gray card in the first shot and again whenever I changed the lighting setup..

Re: Going to the wedding...

Tareq, this may be a little off topic, but I would consider taking that beautiful girl to a dentist! All the postprocessing won't help in real life. Please don't be offended!
