Nice brown skintones like....

Hi there. Im trying to get nice brown skintones like the ones that can be seen on Bill Simone photography or at Jim Fiscus sites. Now ive tried curves , fill, colorlibaries,hue/sat-sepia but nothing gets me even close. Maybe i have the wrong shot and maybe ive been photoshoping to much on this one to change anything.

Try painting with brown on a separate layer set to color and lower the opacity to taste.

Re: Nice brown skintones like....

Bill does a couple of things for the skin tones...one is to make a new hue/sat layer...set hue to around 29 and leave saturation at 25%, then change the layer to "soft light" mode and adjust opacity and fill. Another layer he sometimes does includes making a color fill layer and setting that to soft light as well. Make sure your image isn't too contrasty before you do these though. Hope that helped!

Hi - and thanks all . I must admit - the one surgestion with brush and color mode - That is not working at all - have you tried yourself? Hue/sat and softlight is working great. BTW - great humor! thanks
