My white balance usually stays on auto. It is usually much easier to make the necessary adjustments in PS than it is to keep changing it in camera. This shoot was done under all kinds of lighting sources: florescent, tungsten, window, and a little flash for fill. All are different colors of light. It came out slightly yellow and no matter what I did, I could not get the color right. Too bad the flash did not fire and over ride the yellow.The best solution was mono and presto...I love it more.

    LOL Donald. I do teach about the color of light and white balance in my class. I also teach about light direction and control. I am also teaching an editing class. Lot of stuff to teach.

    Thank you so much everyone. If you look close, you can see the lighting in his eyes. The rectangles across the top are the flourescents. The light to the left is the window and the circle is the umbrella from the mono lights. I do have a class you can take Nancy. I can send it to you.

    Just look at the beautiful and joyful expression you captured on this innocent little baby's face. Your lighting is magnificant!!! I think his photo could be entered for a baby commercial. What a sweet little charmer he is. I love the reflections you captured in his eyes too!!!! Fantastic portrait, Regenia!!!
