Okay, five weeks later I'm back editing these. I've edited off and during the last month, I went back to the RAW images, and only did levels here (using a method Scott Kelby describes in his PSE7 book). I also cloned some background spots and the plexi line. That's it. There's more editing I want to do, but what do you think of his skin tone? I actually took the same level layer from my first edit and copied to the rest, since the camera settings were the same for the series. I feel like his skin might be more off in the close up though.
I will say this, if I use that white background again, I'm totally doing it different. This has been a painful edit due to that background. I hate how gray it looks ... I really feel like my WB is okay though, especially when I look at his crown.
I am calibrated now, but I don't think that's helping me ...
And anyone with PSE7 - how do I check my CMKY percentages? I'm only finding RGB.
Okay, here are the pictures ... like I said, there's more editing I want to do, I want to put them in a collage. But my eyes aren't great with the skin. For the record, he has a farmer's tan here, and his skin has a yellow tone to it.
