Its my standard way to correct skin tones.


In theory, making a Gradient Map of 5 or more samples of Fiscus skintones would make a good variable skin color. havent tried that one yet though.

Model Manheim - had a look at your images - obviously you seem to know what you are talking about - I just dont understand the brown brush/colormode thing . When i try i get kind of curry yellow skintones - now you have to tell the komplete story behind this methode - eks wich brown, what do your start image look like in skincolor ect.

Re: Nice brown skintones like....

I am using it to correct skincolor that gets to much spill light from my bluescreen. Then I select an area with the eyedropper with good color and use my pen and tablet to paint over the spill areas, with blend mode Color. I dont usually change skin color otherwise.I have no expertize in this area.

For what I know its also a standard method of coloring b/w images.

I you get the wrong color from start you can change it later with Hue & Saturation to something more suitable.

"Im satisfied with well lit images - added hue/sat , blend mode and some blend if."

Well you mentioned the Fiscus skin tones in your first post, and this was an idea how to use exact samples of skin tone in a Fiscus image. I did not try it though. But gradient masks are good to apply a number of colors to replace those in the image. It was just an idea that sounded good.

Re: Nice brown skintones like....

Ok Ok - i understand. Im wondering if color mode also preserves texture . (have to try) .
I just started shooting green screen and have a hard time correcting color spill - even if i use Fxhomes greenscreen software. Im aware of the distance to background - but shooting full body gets me some greenspill from the floor on trousers/shoes. wich is the problem. Now this hasent got anything to do with brown skintones. Im getting that by using brown brush, softlight, hue/sat minus red- adjust opacity/fill/blendif. But to correct spill i have to try the color mode thing- also on skin. Thanks for the answer Pelle and again- sorry for my temper.

Re: Nice brown skintones like....

No problems. I too shoot green/blue screen and it seems impossible to get perfect extractions without some/lot of manual tweaking. On the other hand I find replacing backgrounds so rewarding ( at times ) its well worth the extra work.

Ive got to the point that I can not shoot normally now =). The possibility to use two different lighting setups/exposures for background and subject is awesome.
