Photos: Me Talk Pretty @ Pop’s
Sometimes, you’re on assignment for a small gig without a pit. And sometimes, during said gig, they light the entire show with yellow-orange front-lighting. What do you do?
The lighting for headliners Me Talk Pretty wasn’t pretty, but sometimes you just have to go in and bring home the best possible results.
Personally, I’m not a big fan of converting images to black and white simply because of the lighting, even in the instances of severe red light. Instead, a little WB tweak can go a long way – it’s not going to completely kill a lighting effect, but it’s enough to make a performer not look like they’re covered in lava. Maybe.
