Hi guys, I've just been doing some closeup pictures of my hand scooping a bunch of jellybeans out of a bowl. The lighting was a mixture of natural lighting (as much as you get at this time of year) and some incandescent yellow. I've edited the pictures in Lightroom. The background, jellybeans and everything look fine. My skin tones look really pink/magenta though - whereas, looking at my hands, they're more towards yellow/orange. I've tried adjusting the temp. and tint sliders, but no success, I am basically magenta coloured!!! I worked on the raw files, images were taken with Sony A7iii. Sorry, I can't show the pictures yet, I'm uploading them now to QC. Has anyone else experienced problems with skin tones in closeup pictures? Steve
I am interested to know your individual approach to post processing. I always shoot raw and try to do as little post processing as possible for fear of introducing noise etc into my images. As I review them from time to time I sometimes feel they lack "PUNCH" but am still afraid to do too much in case they are rejected by quality control. I should say that I do currently have a 3 star rating. Any help and suggestions, even criticism would be welcome. I have also mentioned before that I am colour blind which doesn't help much. Thanks in advance
