The biggest challenge in portrait photography is getting the skin color correct. The camera picks up all the wavelengths the human eye either doesn’t see or that the brain “corrects” based on previous experience. Without any color correction the following portraits were highly influenced by:

  • the red-orange cast of the tungsten studio lights
  • the color bouncing off the clothes
  • the rich reds and browns bouncing off the instruments, when present

This was shot with slide projection and since the notes are backwards I don’t expect anyone to recognize Ravel’s “Gaspard de la Nuit.”
