On Saturday I had the chance to do the photo's at a hip hop show, and for not having much experience behind the lens I think I got a lot of decent photo's ( lol out of 600 I snapped)

I have a few issues with the photo's though, as everyone I took a picture of looked dealthy ill or very pale skin.

Is there a filter I can get that will reduce this effect?

possible a external lens would help?

is there anything I can do in photoshop that will possible save these photo's?

Due to the photo's being used by a entertainment company I haven't hosted any yet because I haven't watermarked them except for this one a buddy pinched for facebook.

the red clothing is throwing cyan cast to the skin tones I think. probablt could try using a warm up filter I guess an 82A might do the trick.

If you shoot in RAW, you may find that adjusting the temperature balance may help. I have run into this before as a side effect of flash. Maybe if you dialed down the exposure somewhat, and adjusting the contrast, and the brightness will also help. It's one of the things I hate most about flash......getting skin tones right in post.....

what is an 'external lens' in the context you're referring to?

Are you looking for advice on how to make his skin darker? Shift the color? What?
