Gotcha ... thanks.
+1 @ calibrated monitor. You didn't mention using a reference color (gray card/color checker), so I'm curious as to how you assess color? I'm not being critical of your process, just trying to understand where/why/how the variances come into play @ times. OIC @ LR vs. PS.
I personally do not shoot much with a reference color in the scene (shooting mostly ambient/nature) and typically find some neutrals in the scene to guide my balancing, so I'm not being critical of shooting without one, but nature can be pretty forgiving, while portrait/fashion pretty critical.
In the case of Charlie, I go to the pupils and and check them for low tonal value neutrality and use the reflections of your lights in her pupils to check for mid/high neutrality. I found them to be on the cool side and did my usual adjustments to neutralize them ... but then I kinda felt I "overcooked" things and pulled it back a bit, still not confident of whether I helped or made things worse. That, and the shifts on the bg didn't coordinate with what I was expecting.
I usually have a pretty good feeling about my CC, but this one was kinda "mixed" for me ... thus I ask what your approach was to factor into what my starting point was for CC without a standardized reference color.
I hope that makes some sense ... thanks.
Lovely shot with engaging eyes btw. Not sure if it is noticeable to others or not, but her iris is kinda hard to distinguish from her pupil. I might consider the possibility of trying to distinguish her iris a bit more ... Karen, tips @ iris
Also ... diggin' how you incorporated your logo. Subtle, but with message.
