Thread: Newbie Portrait Qn

    Default Newbie Portrait Qn

    Hi.

    I'm a newbie and tried taking a test portrait photo of my son. A part from his facial expression and the terrible fold on his t-shirt (need to be more aware of these things), I noticed that his skin face is rather reddish (most probably due to the red t-shirt he's wearing). Appreciate any suggestions that I can do to remove this or avoid this during photo taking?

    Below is the image :


    Details
    Nikon D80,
    On-Camera SB-600 Bounced to wall TTL-BL (+1.3EV)
    Tamron 90mm f2.8D
    Focus : AF-A
    Focus Area Mode : Single
    Aperture : f6.3
    Shutter : 1/100s
    Exp Mode : Manual
    ISO : 1250
    Metering : Multi Pattern

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, you can adjust the white balance in Photoshop using levels or curve. Use the white color picker found at the bottom and select the white of the eye. This will tell PS that this color should be white and it will remove the red color cast in a jiffy.
