    Default Skintone help!!! One for CC

    I am about to give up on this chestnut background, sigh . I think I am getting crossed eye from determining if the skin tone is good. His eyes were red because he was crying before I took this picture (the joy of having a two year old).

    Please CC and let me know what I need to do to help figure this out.

    I wish I could help you more, but Im uncalibrated. His skin looks warmer than in your siggy pic, but I dont mind the warmth because the background is warm too.

    I think his skin tone looks pretty good - the only thing I see is a yellow-greenish shadow by his right ear and hairline.

    My brown seamless drives me batty. I can never get it even looking.

    Thanks for the cc everyone. I do love this background color. I think I'll shoot my gray card first so that I'd avoid the WB/skintone issue.

    I think his skin tone is lovely - but take it with a grain of salt since I'm on a laptop.

    Don't give up on the chestnut! It's so lovely and warm.
