    Gorgeous.

    The first photo looks like it could use a little boost in contrast, but that's just my personal taste.

    Thanks Dan!! It's been awhile. I'm sure I've missed some of your amazing work while I was gone.

    Very nice. I kind of wish #2 was cropped a little looser but otherwise good job. Just curious, how did you get these skin tones?

    So this was a continuous fluorescent bulb with a softbox in our photobooth at a nightclub.. That blue cast in the first image is just what my camera was coming up with on Auto White balance.. Which is basically a little bit of blue and green added in from a proper whitebalance. The second shot is the same type of light but with my correction of that color cast (which based on my preference still has a slight blue hint)

    (Also I was shooting Nikon which always looks a lot less Red than Canon)

    Ah gotcha. What did Auto put the WB at? Just curious because I always have an issue with leaving too much red/orange in darker skin tones.

    Lightroom has it at Temp: 4150 and Tint: +3

    My best recommendation for solving that issue is to go overboard in the opposite direction, leave it there, leave your computer for 15-30 minutes, and then come back and fix it up. If I'm staring at an image that's too warm or cool for a long enough time I can never really perfect it until I "reset" my eyes to it.
