I love to have a bit of backlighting with my portraits and found a great opportunity yesterday, but I still struggle a bit with color. I love the warmth of the light, but not a face that is too orange or too yellow. I know it's what is naturally happening via the sun, but I would love some tips for keeping or creating a more "peaches and cream" color to her face. I only use Lightroom, but I got PSE (I just haven't learned much about it yet.) Is it possible to do any more than I've done with just LR3? I worked on it quite a bit (desaturaing the face, color levels, etc.)
I would love tips for Lightroom and even PSE (if you show me step-by-step.) I know the light is a bit harsh on her shirt front. Other than the skin and some harsh spots, I would love more feedback on how to make this kind of shot even better.
NOTE: I use the T2i. I wonder if my pictures are not quite as "smooth" or creamy as others who use an 5dmk2, for example. The lens is 85 1.8.
