I am just full of questions lately aren't I? ... I'm sorry just have another one. DH bought me a gray card yesterday. yay! it has a gray side and a white side. I tried using it but with the onboard flash. It was dark and I didn't bring my speedlight. Anyway, I just wanted to test it out. I thought I did it right. I took a picture of it filling the frame basically and then set that as my custom white balance. But then when I go into PS the cmyk %'s are off. Well kind of anyway. For example (1, 24, 26) and according to Amber's tutorial on skin tones, this picture is a little too warm......right? I tried fixing it but nothing looked good and isn't the whole point of a gray card to help with your WB? this is basically sooc. didn't do anything with it in acr. Just resized and sharpened for web in PS. Is using the flash on the camera always going to make the pictures warm? I hardly ever use flash unless for snapshots but I was just anxious to try out the gray card.
it's me :oops: and excuse that white mark on my arm. I don't know what that is.
