Portrait Problems

Natalie and I were doing her weekly portrait session this morning, and it wasn’t going so well.

Picture after picture looked like this:

I changed my white balance to every setting my camera has, adjusted the flash, moved her closer to the window, away from it – nothing worked. Natalie was being wonderful, all cute and smiley, but all of the photos had that weird orange cast.

And then it dawned on me.

Oh, I don’t know, do you think it might have something to do with this GIANT ORANGE REFLECTOR I’m wearing?

*facepalm*

(Once I figured that out, everything went swimmingly. You can see all of her weekly photos on this page.)

    haha! I guess it’s not just fashion when photogs wear nothing but black?

      I guess not! Although the orange did kind of make it look like an instagram filter. I bet I could make a killing doing “instagram” portrait sessions :)
