I've really been trying to get my skin tones right in my images, but this weekend I took some photos of my kids and my best friend in a meadow and forest, and wow, I'm having an awful time getting them right!
But to my eye, it looks like it has a strong yellow color cast (the meadow was FULL of dandelions and it was bright sun to her immediate left) and her hair looks red.
Most of the images I'm struggling with have something like that going on. Either they seem to be OK if I check the ratios, but look off, OR they are OK in parts, but totally out of whack on others.
So my question is: when you're trying to get skin right in challenging situations, with strong color casts or shadows, etc., what part of the skin do you most focus on? I've been checking RGB ratios with the area of the face that most quickly leaps to the eye when you look at the image, but as in this example of Nora, they often still look 'off' to me. Suggestions??!!
