"RE: Faces are sooooo red"

Thank you for responding. I now feel like I'm trying to communicate in another language with people who speak it fluently and I don't. I appreciate all the help very much. I am not sure my answers are very helpful.

I fired the Alien Bee strobe with a Pocket Wizard Plus II.

I had wondered as well about the fluorescent lighting but another member did not think that was factor. It does make sense that it would come into play however, especially if it's green and camera is detecting this. But here I am speaking a foreign language...... not able to connect the dots very well.

As I recall, the red was there even when I turned the lights off and the room was totally dark. Unfortunately, I did not make which photos were taken in the dark. I can try this again. But it's not like I came across a new series of NEFs and said 'Wow, something is different. These are better.'
