Colortemperatues – kelvin, skintones, balance

 

Color and Skin

Different skin tones absorb some parts of the color spectrum, while reflecting others. Look carefully, when using colored lights on people to be sure that you are achieving the desired results. Unless you are trying for a specific effect, you may find that you prefer to photograph skin tones under “white light”. That is light that your film sees as white, which depends on the color balance of your film stock.
