When using my Nikon D70 for people shots, I'm getting too much red in skin tones. I've tried several different settings,i.e., WB:A,sun,cloudy,flash and custom using a white card. My strobe shots are just TOO reddish. I've used the -/+ setting for WB warm/cool. The +1 is too bluish, 0 is closer to natural and -1 is too warm. In other words, I can't seem to find the right combination of settings to get that nice natural look. Even shooting a black person seems too red. Any tips or advice would be appreciated very much. Lens: 80-200mm f2.8, 30-70mm f2.8, 20mm f2.8 and AFS 12-24mm f4 G ED.

Could you post examples? I have a D70 but don't experience this problem when I white balance correctly.

Even in the studio if you leave any lights on other than the modeling light, you can get a color cast from them. Photoshop fixes this problem easily with a couple clicks. -Jim

I usually have my WB set on cloudy all of the time. However I normally shoot in Raw and adjust color temperature in Photoshop to suit. For flash or daylight I end up between 5500K and 6000K. Also depends on the skin tone of the model.

You might want to compare with another D70 to see if yours actually has a defective red tint.

Thanks everyone. Sorry I haven't had time to post some examples. Spent most of the day with medical stuff.....I won't be able to post anything until the weekend since I'll be in the hospital for extensive testing on Thursday and Friday. I do appreciate the feedback but had no control over what happened medically.

I had inadvertently changed the curve setting in my D70 with Nikon Capture. The easiest way to fix it is to restore the default setting in the camera with the 2 button reset.

OK......dummy me! I had been mostly using my 80-200mm f2.8 lens for headshot testing that was recently used on my N90s.....guess what, it had a Skylight 1B filter on instead of a plain UV that I normally use for lens protection. Makes a huge difference in tint with it removed. Again, thanks for all the input. You guys are great.....since other user was getting good quality, it made me start looking for variables.
