AuthorSubject: Getting good skin tones from digital capture   [Go to Bottom of Page]
George Simian
Posted on Fri Jun 20, 2003 8:23 PM

I'm shooting with a Canon 10D (after 2 years of D30), and, while I'm happy with the overall contrast and tonal range, I find the skin tones do not differentiate as well as they do with film. I'm looking for suggestions on how to better separate them, in order to enhance the rendering of facial features and shape. Sharpening does help somewhat, but introduces other problems...
Bruce Frasier suggested some careful curve work - isolating the portion of the curve that relates to the skin, and steepening it. This would also require a selection/mask, as other parts of the image would be affected.
I've had some success with using a copy of the green channel as a luminosity layer, and tweeking that.... but I'm sort of blundering in the dark.
All ideas will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,
George Simian
