    Unhappy Holy flippin' color cast batman!!!

    Okay, so that college senior with the scarf? I never would have imagined that her black hair would have caused more issues with the pp'ing than the stupid scarf, but this is an uter mess!!! I mean, I don't ever remember seeing a color cast THIS bad...like, ever. It's even casting on her shirt. And I honestly don't think it's fixable either.

    If anyone knows a trick or someway to lessen the cast of black hair, please have at it or step me thur it. I have an entire session of these to try and fix.

    I can't really comment on color here since I am at my work's uncalibrated monitor. But I do see that cast or is it more of a shadow? Plus her black hair is showing a bit blue on my screen.

    can't wait to see what Stacey comes up with. Is her hair color a blue black? Or just plain black? If its blue black you'd want to leave a bit of that blue in it I use to have that color. Love it!

    Looks dark here, but in PS it doesn't. Dang flickr....




    I think it was a white balance issue. I corrected the white balance in ACR using the white balance dropper tool, brought the recovery to 0 (that recovery slider brings grayness/fog to images) and upped black +1.

    Opened in PS then did a selective color layer.
    Whites, -10 for cyan, -2 black (took some of the blueness out of her shirt... just done by eye)
    Neutrals, +2 black (because I like it)
    Black, +4 black (brought some richness back to her hair)

    Did a linear curvers layer, changed blending mode to luminosity
    Did a lighten curvers layer, changed blending mode to luminosity, inverted and masked back eyes at 80% opacity (to brighten)

    Flatten, resize, sharpen.

    Oh, black causes terrible color casts...and it is really hard to work with.

    No advice just yet....maybe when Nathan goes for a nap I can have a play.

    ETA:
    Nevermind...Didn't see that Stacey already got to it.

    Nice work Stacey
