Sooo before anyone asked the client didn't want the kids to smile. They were going to a fashion look.

Ive been advised on the forum for a while now to match my strobe to the ambient light. I taped in a cto gel in the octa and it may have been too warm?

My light fell over twice bc it was so windy... it seems like the light is relatively sturdy but I wonder how much abuse it can take or what is the most likely thing to bust first inside it...

From the bts it looks like the cto is too much, a half cto might have been better? You should be able to knock it back in post.

Did you shoot a color card and is your monitor calibrated with a device? What image processor did you use, Capture One or Lightroom? Yes, it does look a little off but that could be my own taste.

Sorry that wasn't very clear was it. The BTS shot looks more natural, the actual result shot looks a tad over warm.

Personal taste, and depending on the look you're going for of course.

I also think its too warm. Too much yellow/maginta.
What happens if you use the WB eye dropper on the white dress and then pull up the yellow about 10 to 20 points?

I blame Peter Hurley.

lol ... I thought of Hurley's setup right away. I like much of what Hurley does for posing but don't care for his light placement half the time. It's too even, although usually not overexposed.

Hurley, according to his statements in videos, has chosen that lighting because its the best way to emulate the large north facing window he initially used for lighting headshots when he first started.

There is also a style element.

Just curious, how do you define over-exposed? What kind of R/G/B numbers you guys looking at the face, forehead. Maybe show some sample shots. Look at this shot from Peter. Isn't it similar to what I posted.

I made this set up for a vintage film camera project. Alot of the camera dont have flash sync ports so I have to use hot lighting. I'll show off the film version when I finish off the roll.

As long as the values are not 255 AFTER processing, it's not overexposed.

That is what I thought so how do you guys says my shot was over-exposed? I assume LR will say the same numbers if on my computer and yours. ;-)a
