Sometimes the issue is getting rid of the orange.

I know this months contest is about orange and what not, but there is a lesson here somewhere about light.

The wrong color light can ruin your color photograph, but it doesn't have to be final. There are ways to fix these aberrations.

You can:
1. Go black and white in post.
2. Get in there and fix it by hand.

There was some hideous orange light coming from those horrible tangerine tinted mercury lamps. If the whole frame was lit by these horrors it would be easy to just adjust the white balance from raw to tungsten and get rid of the orange cast (3000-3400k). However, our frame is partially lit by speedlight, which closely matches dayligth (5500k) Thanks to the selective adjustment brush combined with saturation/luminance adjust in Lightroom it came out OK.

9. I was about to say that the second photo

blows my mind. Then I see it's been said
The difference in backgrounds sets off the face in a spectacular way. It's a learning experience to see that.
Either way the photo itself is perfection to my eye, and will be all but unforgettable.
