I’ve been out shooting at dusk with my xplor 600 and using high speed sync so I can learn the technique. Fun but a little challenging.

I’ve been setting my color balance to kelvin 5600 because that’s what the flashes are supposed to be balanced to. I’ve noticed a saturated reddish color to my pics. Not bad but I’m wondering if I’m doing something wrong. Possibly the exposure being off but I wondered if anybody has experience with this. I’d like to be proficient with it for sure.

Here’s a couple of pics

If you don't have access to a spectrophotometer or a color meter, try shooting a gray card. WB to that in post, and look at the numbers created.
