Photography Question

high key white studio shots printing w/pink cast


I have a studio three light set up - two alien bees and a photogenic. I shoot with a digital rebel canon. I am noticing that on all my high key white shots (all shot on white paper roll) they look great on camera and computer screen but then print pink - sometimes very pink! What am I doing wrong?

Vince Broesch   I would guess printer ICC color profile is wrong.

  Debra,
I agree with Vince. But I would like to know if you have your prints also printed at a pro lab? When was the last time you color corrected your system. By system, I am talking about your camera, your computer and your printer.
I need to find a article about how to do that by Frank Cricchio and I will post it on this site for you to review.

  If nothing else; try using the same color profile for your monitor/photo program/and printer...ie~ AdobeRGB1998 , etc.

  Debra,
I found the article I was looking for. It by Master Photographer Frank Cricchio, I had the honor of being in Frank's class last year at the Texas School. It is a week long intense class in Portraiture photography. He went over the information in an article in the December 2004 issue of “PhotoShop.” It’s five pages with illustration. If you want to know more about Texas School please email me at douge1957@hotmail.com
Hope this information help.
Good Shooting and Happy Holidays.
Doug
