Hmm probably some more stuff in photoshop like fixing skin tons (along with how to use the on computer calibration until i can convince dh to buy me the software) and white balance...
I think im more of a "do" than read person tho.
Have you looked up the numbers for skin tones? They are usually pretty helpful when editing skin tones. I really think skin tones are one of the hardest things to conquer. It always helps to have the correct wb and exposure.
The two things I suggest is really learning how to read a histogram and then learning about the number values for skin tones.
Basically if the cyan is about 5% the magenta should be about 10% and the yellow around 15% Thats just a rough draft.. magenta should never be higher than yellow.. again, its best to use your eyes for the best judgement and then just use the values for a guide.. hth!!
so the magenta should always be higher than cyan, by no more than 10, and yellow should be higher than magenta, no more than 10.! ( I wasnt implying that cyan should be at 5% every time).. thats just a rough guide!
Do you have a link for the histogram? Shooting in studio isn't too big of an issue for me (but then again im uncalibrated for right now..hopefully i can get some software with tax stuff) but outside can be sometimes. I need to research the WB stuff and figure that out too, i suppose lol.
