I'm stuck in Chicago at my 83yo Mom's house because she needed some unexpected surgery. It is very cold and I have been very board. So i raided the fridge and added a few things from the local produce market.

I like it well enough. I might adjust black level when I get back home in a few days, hard to tell on my laptop.

I'm really surprised that your walls fell to darkness so quickly.

There is more space from the back wall than it looks like, over two feet. I was a little closer to the side wall for fill. I set the flash to it's narrowest beem, 105mm I think. I also added the fancy snoot and had the light relatively close. When I shot the room was pitch dark.

Yikes, what's going on with her forehead? Is it something done in post or is it a bruise?

honestly it was my first time using the zoom li-on r2 and the ricebowl... Her makeup was kinda glossy and so it's a hot spot on her forehead. I tried to tone it down by pulling highlights but evidently didn't work out well.

I'm still very much a newb when it comes to flash photography so I struggle balancing ambient/flash power and typically have the flash too hot. Which is why I want to get a light meter to help me in this struggle. Thanks for being front about it.

This is why we start (gasp) shopping in the make-up section (you can ask your SO to buy it for you). :). Actually, this is not an uncommon problem, even with professionally applied make-up. The skin releases oil which comes up.

If you don't have a make-up artist on hand, You can keep a neutral powder handy. Or you can get these little sheets of paper which soak up the oil. Makes post-processing easier :).

I know it's best to get foreheads as oil-free in camera as possible, but I'm curious: anyone have any particularly clever ways of correcting shiny skin like this in Photoshop?

I tend to sample the adjacent non-shiny skin, then gradually paint with very low flow until the shininess is gone but the texture is still there. I know this is Not the "right" way to do it, but when I have 30 headshots to retouch that I had to do in a hot room... it's fairly quick.

Any alternate suggestions?

Owen.

Frequency separation would allow you to fill the color and fix any texture lost due to overexposure.

Nicely done and I think the vignette also added better focus on the subject.

Perhaps this is better? Just did a ton of heal brush in light room over and over again.

Also the one with my daughter turned out much better.... she didn't require makeup lol

Wow, that looks really good Talley! Nice work on that one.
I wasn't trying to be rude BTW, i was viewing on my phone and it made that spot look just like a bruise. Looks very different on my monitor this morning and your fix is very good, something I'm not really skilled at. How did you do it?
