Lit with 500w lamp top down. ISO 800, 100 shutter speed and 7.1 aperture, auto white balance. 580 Speedlite flash front on with diffuser and powered down 1/3.
I guess not enough flash/dont do diffuser and more shutter speed?

A very nice intimate shot , a pity the little boy isn't sharp or was that deliberate ? Bill
Yes not happy about the blurry boy - see my comments above for suggestions plus my posting on the next shot which was a bit better.
In Photoshop Elements 3 I went to 'remove colour cast' clicked on the background with the eyedropper and it gave a very acceptable skin tone with a white-ish background.
Ooh sounds great as your shots are staggering and I think you've mastered PS! But sorry not sure where to view it though? Also this may not be the same as I use Photoshop 7 rather than Elements, but where would "remove colour cast" be?
Not a bad pic, See the mod i used a filter in photoshop called photofilter under image, adjustments. Not sure if version seven would have this. As for the colour cast, is there a custome white balance setting with the 300d, I should know this but havent checked.
Thanks Paul - yes good modification, as it takes off the yellow nicely.
Dont think version 7 has photofilter sadly - which version have you got? Yes the 300d does have a custom white balance setting and yes that would be a good plan to set it before the shoot - D'oh, havent really used it and new to this indoor portrait stuff.
Do you know what/where/how you "remove colour cast" as Merl mentioned? I really need to get further into Photoshop, and check my version out as also struggling to even change the background with the dropper as wanted to get that to a more white hue. Very annoying.
