... I can also use Adobe Camera RAW to handle these blown highlights. However like I said earlier I seldom encounter this lighting issue.

I experimented recovering the highlights via the basic Manual Exposure----Highlight Priority Strong.

So that's something in ACR?


It's a good starting block and then I post processed my way from there. Looks good to me and I will use this method in the future.

I see what you've improved, but you've also lost brightness in the skin tones. I'd try to restore those areas (and probably boost some of the blacks).

Agreed. I think I'd have used a brighter setting, perhaps Highlights Priority — Slight, and made more use of Smart lighting, perhaps Spot Weighted mode.

It was still bright and wanted to minimize the flash effect so at the last second I decided to put a dash of Astia via FP and decreased the exposure.
