    I'm a complete noob at PP. How do I get rid of (or minimize) the effect of this green stage light while still keeping the skin tone relatively natural looking?

    Thanks in advance

    Man that one is a toughy. I just messed around with it in photoshop for like fifteen minutes. No quick fixes that I can see.

    what was it shot with? also in RAW or jpeg?

    its the white balance its waaaaaaaaaay off (it seems)

    it can be fixed i think, but its tough since the white balance is so GREEN

    For future reference:

    Takes about two seconds to correct. Just put it in light room and click the "hard right" button on both temp and tint.

    Wallah... you have a normal looking picture. Just did it, but don't want to make the effort of posting.

    But an overabundance of red. Look at his hair. However, its certainly better than the original photo, but the colors have been pushed in other areas (the hair, guitar base, guitar neck).
