Help With SKin Color

Hello.

I would like to know if any one can tell me about this problem. I am using a HD 200 and with Paolo Color settings, shooting in 720p50 i find that when i am out in the sun and have the color 5600K set the picture seem to be a bit pinkish tone, can some one tell me how to fix that, if i also use the the same color setting and re set the white balance to suit a different location in side its ok.

Rob - I downloaded these within a few seconds yesterday - now however they aren't downloading (it appears as if they are but they're somehow stuck - hence they appear to be huge files)....in fact it looks like the links are now broken.

EDIT...the links now work although they do take some time...

Picture number 2 looks like late afternoon sun. Is that right?
Picture 1 looks fine to me colour wise. 3200k will be suitable for most artificial lights. However, different luminaires give off different colours. Many people find it tempting to correct as a matter of course but try to achieve a colour that looks right for you and your production. Don't always assume that white has to be white! Our eyes hardly ever see white as white in the real world!

What time of day are you shooting outside? Are you just shooting on pre-set white balance? Did you balance your whites manually? Don't assume that 5600 is suitable for all sunny times of day!

I don't know if this is a contributing factor or not, given that you are using Paolo's colour setting, but both exposures appear to be "blown out". I'm not sure if that in any way affects colour rendition but my experience has always been that a correctly exposed (or SLIGHTLY underexposed) image gives more accurate colour representation and more latitude for post production correction.

I agree with Stuart. Your color is fine and probably accurately reflects reality. The girl on the left in Picture 1 is wearing a bright pink shirt, which no doubt is reflecting a bit of a pink glow on her face. Besides, younger kids tend to be a bit florid, anyway.

In picture 2, it looks like any pinkish cast is likely from the low-lying sun. It looks like the actual sunlight was a bit warmer than 5600K due to the low angle of the sun.

I think they both look fine and wouldn't worry about them. If you're not happy with them, it should be pretty easy to tweak in post. Which, after all, is the whole point of Paolo's settings.
