Posing Question : I have a potential model whose shoulders are a touch too wide compared to her hips. What types of poses and shooting angles can I use to minimize this?

D1x : It's a real hassle having to correct the white balance in post every single time to get rid of the red tone, especially since these AB strobes claim to be daylight-balanced. What WB do you use in the studio with the D1x?

Thanks

Multiple questions. First with my D1X I use the flash or the Shade WB but I use Novatrons. It is trial and error depending on your lights. Shoot a model with all of them and compare.

Broad shoulders are normally turned 30 to 45 degrees to the camera and I've even done some 10 degree slants. The hips which is the area most women worry about should be balanced top what you see in the viewfinder. Anything that accentuates the positive and makes her feel good is usually good. Show her a couple and you will get immediate feedback on what she likes and does not like. Take it from there.

You find it hard at the start of a shoot to get a model to hold a piece of white paper, focus on it, and push 2 buttons???

You go to the menu, find "pre-set white balance" select "set" and shoot one time.

You then select that setting as your white balance for the the shoot...how hard is that?

Unless you are having horrible color temp fluctuations with power changes to the lights, you shouldn't have to re-set the white balance for the remainder of the shoot.

Once you have saved a white balance pre-set, you can recall it later (the D1x has 3 presets you can save) in additon to flash, shade, sun etc.

D100 uses a different sensor, but on the D1x (as I've discovered by looking back through my photos and finding one set that WASNT red) Daylight -3 seems to work pretty well, at least with Alien Bees. But every strobe is different.

I first borrowed a color temperature meter, and checked all my studio strobe heads.... I found (as I had suspected) one that was much colder than the others, and one a little colder. I replaced both tubes and then all 10 were with in tolerance of each other.

Then I did a custom white balance in my D1X with a white card and bare tube head.

I also did a custom white balance with the D1X for my Norman 200b head too.

WB has been pretty much spot on since then.
