Joey hey bud, I'm new here. I found a picture of yours via Google one time and it was the one with I do believe your daughter and bubbles. I was simply inspired and in awh how beautiful the picture was. I tried explaining and describing it to my wife but I couldn't find your image or flikr again. Now scrolling through here I find it! You do amazing work!

What are you using to fire your strobes? Pocketwizards?

And a tut of how you accomplish perfect color balance would be amazing

Whats up Cody, thanks for the super awesome kind words bro;) Glad you found the shot again hope your wife approves of my image;) I use my Yongnuo yn-622c's to trigger all my strobes now. Thanks for asking for a tut on my post work bro to sum it up quickly for you its just a bunch of layer masks to achieve the look I feel. If I wrote it all down right now it would take me a few mins ;) I am thinking about making a ps tut video since a lot of people have been asking me. When I make one I will let you know bro thank you again for the kind words!

Another from the Gianna set;)

Hi, I feel stupid giving you advices since your pictures are perfect, but you probably want to know that iso 50 at your camera is not doing more good for you than pulling the exposure in PP. Just want to mention it because it can still give you blown high lights, and you want see it before youre at your computer later.
Anyway, love your pictures :)

First time messing with a softbox. I'm guessing to get rid of red color on the leftside of her face (her left) I would need to use a reflector? How does everything else looking? Thanks.

I edited a bit more to get some of the red out.

Some of my feedback

Using a reflector isn't going to get rid of the color cast. In order to get rid of that, you are going to have to kill the ambient light, or gel your light to match the ambient. Other than that, it looks pretty good.

If possible, move her farther from the background, lessening that color's effect. A reflector would bring more of the flash's color temperature to the left side of her face. The flesh tones on her right side look okay.

Kill the ambient dead: that is the first order of studio shooting and, where possible, any location where you can exert control. Unless you live in a white box, the ambient cast is a mix of colors coming from every direction. In the worst case, gelling fails because there is no unifying ambient color. The other problem is artificial light which is always the wrong color for a xenon flash, and is becoming increasingly spiky in its spectrum as we move to CFL and LED. Getting screwed by ambient was the reason I got into studio lighting. :)
