Adjusting Skintone Colors
Let's see, do I wanna do any pre-editing here in Capture One, because we're here, otherwise I'm gonna wind up doing it in camera raw. We have a skin tone option here. I'm select these little dot things. I'm in Color Editor, Basic Advanced Skintone. I'm gonna select her skin tone here. I'm gonna say View Selected Color Range. What this means is that everything that is not within my selected color range, is gonna turn black and white. I'm gonna slide back the smoothness. And you'll see the image is getting more and more black and white. I'm gonna bring up that redness. And so you see, this dress here has a lot of skin tone in it, right, because it's a cream color, So that's kind of something that's gonna happen. But, I'm gonna see if I can just pull up the uniformity a little bit, and it's going to affect a little bit of the dress but I'm kind of okay with it. I might pull down the Saturation a little bit. If we look at her skin here, so it's not affecting her lipstick, right because her...
lipstick is quite pink. So, let's bring up the smoothness a bit 'cause I wanna catch her knuckles there. 'Cause here the tips of her fingers, that were catching the highlight, were turning black and white. That means that we're not actually impacting the actual color there, so I'm gonna bring up the smoothness until I'm catching that color. If I turn down the Uniformity. What we're catching right now is her hands are a little bit slightly different color than the rest of her face and her arms. If I pull up the Uniformity a tiny little bit, you'll see that her hands are starting to get a slightly more pleasing color. That's actually one of my favorite things about Capture One, I mean you can do this in Photoshop if you wanna do color layers and everything else, but it's something that's very very nice in Capture One that we can work with that. I turn off the View Selected Color Range, so it's on and now it's off and so everything kind of comes back to its original color. This is very nice. I'm gonna go down to Clarity, and I might just increase a little bit of the Structure, tiny little bit. It's just bringing out a little bit of detail here. If I go to My Curve, I'm just playing it here on the left hand side. Remember there was the RGB and the Luma so if you were watching yesterday, I went through the demonstration of what the difference was. I can just touch on it here quickly today. If in RGB, I go up and I go down, it plays with the saturation of the image a lot. One of the nice things that Capture One has done as we go to Luma instead, I can bring this up, and I can bring this down, and we're not having that crazy saturation problem which is really nice. I'm not interested in cranking up the brightness on this whole image, I'm just looking at maybe bringing up just a little bit of the darkness. Let's bring that back down just a touch. So that's looking pretty nice. I'm kinda likin' where that's at. I'll do the more color corrections and everything else once I get into post-production, or once I, post-production, prior to post-production, once I get into Photoshop. That's where we're sitting. I increased a little bit of structure, slightly brought up the shadows a little bit. And I evened out the skin tone on her hands using the Skintone Tool. We are going to go right click, Edit With, TIFF, 16 bit, 300 pixels per inch, Photoshop, Edit. My Photoshop's gonna load up. And so, what I'm gonna do here is I have these adjustments that I made on this image. Oops, let's go back to Capture One, right click, Copy Adjustments, and I'm gonna go down to the other image that I like here, this one. Right click, and Apply Adjustments. It's just a little bit of work that's been done. I'm going to right click this, Edit With, Photoshop. I'm gonna keep them both open just in case I decide to change my mind, 'cause I really like this first one here, but I also might wind up settling on this one, 'cause I shot it and I was like, ah that's awesome. And, it totally just hit while we were getting ready to pack up.
