A lot of green in the skin tones.

Edit to say: I see the problem now. You're displaying it in ProPhoto colorspace. In browsers that aren't color managed (most browsers), the colors are going to be way off.

In Safari, it looks really green. In Chrome, it looks fine.

I was directed here by a friend in another thread. Glad to have found it because I've only seen threads regarding continuous strobe lighting.

Here's my first share...

Now the skin tones not only still look a little too green but now they also have too much yellow giving them a jaundice look. I think the original image definitely could have used a bit of magenta to offset the greenish cast from the grass but it was not bad. What is a little distracting is the direction of the fill light. The sun is coming in from camera left while the fill light is coming in from camera right casting shadows opposite the direction they would be cast by the sun. I see this all the time in photographs and it just does not look very natural although I realize this is one of those issues that can be subjective. Just my 2 cents!

Much better in sRGB. Most web browser only supports sRGB color space.

I like it, even with that fly in her hair in the first and last frames! Great facial expression once she gets a taste of the lemon.

Thanks.

I thought I'd removed the flies!

Hey all,

I'm shooting a wedding next month and have been considering buying a couple lightspheres. I will have on camera (bracket) and one on stand for cake cutting and dance floor. Anyone have any advice or suggestions on these? I know stofen comes up but I just don't see those softening as much as the spheres. Thanks!

Yeah, here is a bit of advice. DONT. They dont do what you think they do. Learn how to bounce your flash, the lightspheres only work in circumstances where you have plenty of bounce surfaces, if you have that, you probably dont need a lightsphere to begin with. Do a search here for Fong and you will find plenty of discussions on the evil of those devices. The only way to get softer light is to make your light source larger and the lightspheres dont do that. Bouncing does.

Not even for outdoor portraits? Also, should I still run with one on bracket one on stand? I've shot bounce before and I just feel the overhead light it would force me to work with is too unnatural. I was in a wedding last week and their photogs shot with a sphere on camera and one on stand an their lighting and images were looking amazing SOOC. They were also shooting 24-70 L and 70-200 L I believe which I clearly don't have.
