I’ve been following this discussion with interest, and I hope you all don’t mind if I interject a thought.

I see in this EXIF data the camera lists that flash did not fire suggesting flash was not used as far as the camera was concerned. We also know that the ambient lighting was fluorescent and the WB was set to auto. That would, I think, cause the camera to select a WB setting balanced for the fluorescent lighting, which depending on which type could be lacking in the red spectrum. I would then think the strobes used would add the missing spectrum causing the in camera WB selection to be in error. Although I don’t know how one could trigger studio strobes, but then have the camera think that no flash fired.

Hopefully my ignorance and lack of experience in this area is not causing me to come to an incorrect conclusion.
