It is not practical to gel for wall color but it is important to use your tungsten gel for rooms with incandescent lighting which are very common because they work with dimmers. Without the gel all of your backgrounds will have a yellow tint when the subjects are correctly white balanced.

To eliminate the red tint you might try working with the red slider in your processing – moving it toward cyan. To get the basic white balance try the white balance dropper on a white shirt, table cloth or piece of paper.


There is an excellent reference for skin tones here: http://science.nationalgeographic.com/science/wallpaper/skin-colors.html

Save the larger image in a convenient location for reference in color balance issues. Personally, I don’t use a color picker on the reference image or any other tech tools – I simply view it periodically while editing as a reminder for the correct appearance of skin tone.
