jimmy, you must have read my mind, I've been working on this article since yesterday, but here is hopefully some great info I wrote for our articles here: http://www.glamour1.com/forums/artic...tml#post239557
On a side note, setting the WB at 6000K is appropriate. I noticed some (not you) referenced AWB, or automatic white-balance for their strobes--you can't do this logically as no camera today is quick enough to see the flash and calculate the white-balance based on that flash. Most folks wind up with an incorrect WB based on that technique, usually a white-balance to the modeling bulb, hence colder looking images when the flash goes off. Ideal white-balance for flash, set the camera to "flash" mode, or 6000K for warmer images or 5500K for cooler images.
Thanks again for another great post--crap, I'm starting to like you now
, have a great Holiday Season and thanks for being a big part of the G1 family and community, rg sends! (BTW, I just got back from shooting the Spurs and we did a white-balance check on the lighting, found it at 3700K, thought that was odd, later, rg.)

Do we become warmer as we get older? (grin)
