If black absorbs light, can it also still give a colour cast to subjects? Is the potential effect more or less pronounced then with brighter colours, say yellow, or the same.
I took photos of my friend last weekend. She was wearing a black jacket. In most shots everyone else looks well lit, natural colour yet in every shot her face seems to have a shadow / look slightly underexposed. Is this just my crappy skills of can you get a dark colour cast from dark clothing? For what it's worth, the photos were taken around 10am (near winter so sun only up a couple of hours and still reasonably low). I can't share specific images as I don't have her permission to do so.
