My dad who's been shooting film back in his day says that all of my flash shots of people have the wrong skin tone on the final print. (Using my R300) He says the skin is too yellowish when it should be more pinkish. The flash I use is sb 600 direct lighting, not bounce or anything. I have my D2x on mode I and shoot many JPGs. I have a thought that maybe white balance has to do something with this? I use flash WB presetting on +0. Any way to fix this guys?
