Got a new a new flash, and had options to shoot some portraits in a very umm special setting tonight. This is probably the best headshoot that came out of the night.
- when you shoot with flash, in mixed lighting, you can get, very often, not the best, or consistent, White Balance
- as such, you have to be ready to individually WB each picture if necessary
- I would suggest that you play with the WB to get a slightly warmer less bluish image
- there is also funky green / magenta stuff going on in this image which might be harder to correct
I don't see a 'flashed' looked to his face, nor a strong flashed catch light, so I'm guessing you either bounced the flash or might have cropped this image. One of, if not the biggest issue with flash, is getting the WB correct in mixed lighting environments - and once the mixed lighting has been 'mixed' it really can't be unmixed - so maybe think of practicing with gelling your flashes in the future or try and work on your Post Processing and getting the WB 'better'.
Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
