I originally posted these questions in the "everything you want to know about lighting" thread that was going on a while ago. At HelenB's suggestion, I am starting a separate thread about it, in hopes to get a good discussion going on here. This is the original post: I set up my soft box again this am and set up the lights (my clamps must not be very good, they keep wanting to swing down, heavy lights I guess? Does it matter if the lights touch the fabric or should they be set away from it?) Anyway, I am still getting blue or pink casts in the pictures. Can you help? edit to add, I was shooting in RAW and used the incandescent WB setting, and varied the setting between -3 up to +3 to see if I could get a correct color. I could not. Is it necessary to set the WB if shoot in RAW?
