FL-600R + EM-5 skin-tones: Where to start?
Sep 2, 2012

I'd like to get some hints on where to start with white-balance for skin-tones when using my E-M5 with the FL-600R flash?!

The following shots were done pointing the flash straight up at the ceiling to get evenly fill-flash without shadows or flash-tunnel. It's a crop out of a bigger picture, there is some whitish mattress and diapers in the rest of the frame (any way to make Auto WB only work on crops?).

Lightroom 4 "As Shot" (no other editing, except default Sharpening)

Lightroom 4 "Auto" (no other editing, except default Sharpening)

Lightroom 4 "Flash" (no other editing, except default Sharpening)

Raw Therapee 4 "As Shot" (+ Auto levels)

Raw Therapee 4 "Auto" (+Auto levels)

Raw Therapee 4 "Flash" (+Auto levels)

Quite a difference between the various possible starting points...
