Hi Guys, I photographed a friend's wedding on the weekend and the reception was held in a very dark venue which had red walls and roof with the off sky light providing minimal natural light.
I was using my SB800 speedlight and when pointing it directly at the subject I was getting a hot dot on the person's forehead. I turned the flash output down as far as I was able to eventually opted for bouncing the flash off the walls and roof which has of course produced a slightly reddish cast, particularly to skin tone.
Is there any way around this? A gel perhaps? I tried correcting the colour in PS but haven't been happy with the results so far.
