CC welcome. I read that the Nikon tends to underexpose when the light meter says its perfect. So I changed my exposure to 2 clicks above normal and this is what I got. I am concentrating on skin tone right now, but other tips are still welcome. This is SOOC..not cropped yet or anything. The first is the average skin tone/exposure I have been getting. My only changes were to change my Picture Control from "Standard" or "Portrait" to Neutral. I also bumped the exposure up two notches on my camera.

SOOC from 2 days ago...exact same conditions outside (cloudy) WB set to cloudy just like today.


Today SOOC: (I know it might seem a little orange, but my girls are both super tan and Violettes hair was wet which IRL makes it more of a strawberry blonde...It might be a little orange though...not sure what is tan/wet hair or not!)
