    Ed, I'm wondering if you can discuss how to fix white balance in an upcoming studio Meetup? I noticed in this past Wednesday's session, a number of my original shots appear to be too warm. And, it seemed as if my shots of James in particular were really warm. I tried to fix that, and others, with the eyedropper in Lightroom, clicking on his hair or, in some cases, on the whites of the eyes. I don't know if I made it too cool and maybe should have warmed these back up a bit. Just would like to get a better idea how you do this. Thanks.

      Wesley, I tend to agree with you. I mentioned that I have used a gray card before, but only for a couple of freelance jobs I did. I much prefer to fix WB in LR, and I'd prefer doing do with a single click or two. Sometimes it does work, but other times it does not, and I have to play with the Temp and Tint sliders, sometimes without the results I'd like. So while it is preferable for me to fix with a single click in LR, it's nice to have that added tool of doing something before you take the shot. I also always shoot RAW for anything that's personal for me, including Meetups. About the only time I shoot JPEGs is for a particular client I do freelance work for....that's what they want, straight out of the camera.

      Color management aka white balance has always been a mix of art and science. Most newer strobe systems are good at keeping a constant temperature. Older systems can very between shots. The speedatron black set can very, the other three sets at the studio should be pretty constant. If the strobe has not recycled fully it will not only not put out enough light but it will not be the right temperature. Shooting in raw and setting wb when developing is the way to do it. I use Phase One software myself, but I know Lightroom and Aperture both are quite capable and once you get it, works well but you always will come across challenges. Some clothes dyes are just tricky. Green is almost always a headache.
