Exposure, my camera is set to ISO 100 then I overexpose about 1/2 stop.The camera is also set to tungsten as my light source is 3200K. I use RAW as the file type.

Taking a white balance of the orange mask helps. I use Photoshop ACR to do the white balance and inversion. Then fine tune in PS. Works reasonably well. I have also found less fiddling the better.
