A set of nearly two dozen tweaks, twists, and takes on images with skin. Nailing skin tone is a tricky, subjective, and absolutely essential part of any people photography. Some of our solutions are inspired from a deep understanding of film emulsions popular with people photographers such as Portra. Others are entirely new approaches to the issue of skin tone variations. Of course these styles can also be applied to images that aren’t of people. Keep them in mind especially for images which have strong backlighting, or a lot of red. For those looking to isolate skin tone tweaks from all other adjustments (e.g. to apply to an image that has already been stylized, but which needs help on skin tone) we suggest checking out the Skin Tone tweaks in the Tools (see below).
