Do costomers like the golden hue over a balenced light in a glamour image ? I see some people shoot there stuff with it and some prefer to not have that golden hue in there work. I have found it is much harder to get that golden hue when you shoot with a digital camera. What are your opinions on this ?

When you say "customers" are you speaking of clients who hire you, or the people in your photographs? Not that it really matters, if YOU like it, and that's your style, and THEY (whoever they are) like it, and pay you for it, then do it. I love it, and do it whenever I can. At the beach I always shoot the last few hours of the day looking for that golden light just before sunset, or I create when I can't. The shot below was done with the sun coming over the model's shoulder, and a silver reflector (reflecting the same warm light coming from the sun). If you're having trouble getting warm skin tones with digital (this was shot on film) try turning off the Auto White Balance since that's always going to try and make natural skin tones. Try using daylight setting, and as the sunsets, the color will get warmer.

I get some new models now and then that want " glamour content " and when they tell me what it is they are looking for in a shot it's not with the golden hue. But when I show them one like that they say they like that also. I have also been told to shoot in cloudy white balence mode most of the time when outside. I gues you have to do what works for you when it comes to this..

Okay, that's a little strong. Quite a bit of the time it does just fine. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

(Note: This is not directed to Andy, who knew all this. It's more to the OP, but inspired by Andy's message. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] )

But I finally started shooting entirely in RAW, after being yelled at by a book about it, and then doing the color temperature setting at read time.

*Wow,* does it make a difference.

I can tweak this and that and bring the pic in the way I want it to look. I can balance so that what I think is most important has the best color. I can plan my color correction before finalizing the import. I went up on the roof yesterday morning and did some landscape shots, and the difference between the machine's best guess and my preferred color temperature settings was quite radical. It's the bee's knees, I tell ya. It's a little more time-consuming (although if you count fixing what the AWB does wrong, it probably ends up being faster.) Try it. You'll like it.
