Christine was in her kitchen cooking up a storm prior to us trundling down to Wharf 1 to see "Elling" last night. Which was absolutely wonderful, by the way.
She had overhead lighting on which was dim and she has a copper dye in her hair. I wanted the way the light interacted with the hair and she was prepared just to yak at me as I shot away which is a first as she usually sticks her tongue out!
The stats will be similar for each non-processed shot. Here they are for the top right image: F5.0, 1/40, ISO=800, WB=Fluro, 74mm, sRGB
So I whacked it into Photostudio (the Canon equivalent) and reduced the saturation by about 50%, increased the brightness by about 30% and then increased the contrast by 20%. It now looks washed out but this might only be in comparison. I think my stats are consistent. I should have tried tungsten to cool it down, I suspect.
I will try again next weekend (we gals are gathering to watch Casablanca as the inaugural "Cinema East" offering of old filums) and this time I will use tungsten and maybe try fill-flash and see if that destroys the lights in the hair. Now to tell her that I have posted it ... and then to duck!!
