Accurate skin tones are so important

The very first step
0:29
Verify with your scopes
1:03
Crop into your skin
1:36
Often there’s more than just your subject’s skin that’s off
2:02
One way to fix skin tones (when shot has an overral cast)
3:04
Read your shot and determine what’s the best tool to use
3:34
The wheels make big gradual adjustments to your image
4:16
A different approach
4:47
Be cautious of how your adjustment affects the rest of your shot
5:03
The time I actually suggest using temp and tint sliders for color balancing
5:28
Quick clean up
6:10
The enhance light & color feature kinda works?
6:26
Isolating the hue of skin when the rest of your shot is balanced
6:39

00:00:00
you don't want your skin tones looking
00:00:01
like this or this so let's cut out the
00:00:03
fluff and hop into FCP so we can learn
00:00:05
how to get perfect skin tones every time
00:00:08
you edit the first thing you need to ask
00:00:10
yourself is does my subject skin look
00:00:13
like an accurate color of skin for
00:00:15
example in this shot there appears to be
00:00:17
a yellowish cast on her skin it could be
00:00:20
some Bounce from her sweater but
00:00:22
nevertheless we'll take care of it so
00:00:24
after you use your eyes make sure it is
00:00:27
true with your vide Scopes the shortcut
00:00:29
to bring these up that you should
00:00:30
remember is command 7 hit this icon and
00:00:34
select the vector scope this scope shows
00:00:37
you the saturation levels and colors in
00:00:40
your shot but the thing we really need
00:00:42
to pay attention to is this line This is
00:00:46
the skin tone line no matter what your
00:00:48
race or ethnicity accurate skin should
00:00:51
always fall on this line now there are
00:00:53
exceptions like specific lighting or
00:00:56
stylized color grades like you see in
00:00:57
movies but usually for accurate skin in
00:01:00
it'll be on this line what I'd suggest
00:01:02
you do is hop in your inspector window
00:01:06
head to crop and use the crop tool so
00:01:09
only your subject's skin is selected I
00:01:12
usually use the forehead because it is
00:01:14
the biggest area of skin on the face
00:01:17
plus there's not usually makeup on this
00:01:19
area that can change the color of a
00:01:21
person's skin if you are trying to
00:01:22
correct someone's skin who uses makeup
00:01:24
of course so as we can see her skin is
00:01:27
not on the skin tone line now there are
00:01:29
actually many different ways to adjust
00:01:31
this and it is going to depend on the
00:01:32
shot but let me mention some important
00:01:34
points first usually it's not just your
00:01:38
subject skin that's off color often
00:01:40
times other areas of your shot might be
00:01:43
off color due to an incorrect white
00:01:45
balance in camera or even the fact that
00:01:47
some cameras or lenses seem to add a
00:01:50
color cast to your entire image so
00:01:52
usually the Quick Fix is to use your
00:01:55
Global wheel I'll add another color
00:01:57
wheel adjustment for the example so it's
00:01:59
not the contrast saturation layer you'll
00:02:02
go to your Hue slider on your Global
00:02:04
wheel and for those who are new the
00:02:06
global Hue slider let you push a hue or
00:02:09
color into your entire image so all
00:02:12
you'll do is see what color is being
00:02:14
cast on the skin so in this instance her
00:02:17
skin is swinging more towards yellow
00:02:19
we'll find yellow on the color wheel and
00:02:22
push
00:02:23
away this introduces more of the
00:02:25
opposite color into the shot which
00:02:27
eliminates the cast and correct her skin
00:02:30
once we toggle the crop off you can
00:02:33
really see how off we were now the shot
00:02:35
does need more work I'm not too happy
00:02:38
with the cast I'm seeing on our blacks
00:02:40
so what I'd like to use is our shadows
00:02:41
wheel to push away from the blue hue
00:02:44
quadrant and this eliminates some of
00:02:45
that blue cast we could also use the
00:02:48
Luma versus SAT curve to clean up these
00:02:50
areas as well like I teach in my color
00:02:52
grading master class but for this
00:02:54
example we stop here because her skin is
00:02:56
accurate remember how I said that there
00:02:58
are many different ways to adjust
00:03:00
subject skin depending on your shot this
00:03:02
is a perfect example his skin isn't
00:03:05
accurate as we can see by the fact that
00:03:07
his skin is slightly off the skin tone
00:03:09
line but the issue here is that if we
00:03:11
use the global Hue slider to remove this
00:03:14
yellowish green cast it'll also affect
00:03:17
the warm bright light that we have
00:03:19
coming in from the windows and we want
00:03:21
to keep that with this shot we're going
00:03:23
to get a better result by using our
00:03:25
shadows hu slider why is that though
00:03:27
Dylan skin tones usually lie in the
00:03:29
midtones so why not use our midtone
00:03:32
slider so it mainly affects him the
00:03:34
reason is because we want to keep the
00:03:36
very brightest parts of our shot that
00:03:38
same warm golden color we'll use the
00:03:41
Shadows Hue slider because it'll adjust
00:03:43
the Shadows the most the midtones a
00:03:46
little and the highlights the least
00:03:48
that's because using your color wheels
00:03:50
does not make an isolated adjustment to
00:03:53
those areas in your shot they make big
00:03:56
broad Strokes across your image once we
00:03:59
turn off the CR and see what we did
00:04:01
you'll see that although it's a minor
00:04:02
adjustment we removed that cast got his
00:04:05
skin to be more accurate and kept that
00:04:08
warm Golden Light in the highlights that
00:04:10
we wanted to see this shot is also a
00:04:12
great example of how there's not a one
00:04:14
siiz fits-all approach so her skin is
00:04:17
not accurate as we can see it is way off
00:04:20
the skin tone line yet if we bring up
00:04:22
our RGB parade this tells us that our
00:04:25
black point or the very darkest parts of
00:04:27
our shot is close to tr black how you
00:04:30
can tell this is if the very bottom of
00:04:32
your three channels are lined up pretty
00:04:35
evenly and these are so you might think
00:04:38
well then let's just adjust our midtones
00:04:40
by pushing the midtones hu slider away
00:04:43
from that bluish color cast until her
00:04:45
skin is on the skin tone line but the
00:04:48
problem is since your color wheels make
00:04:50
a big gradual adjustment to your shot
00:04:53
this also affects your highlights and
00:04:55
your shadows slightly so with this shot
00:04:58
because our black point is correct we'll
00:05:00
use the temperature and tint sliders
00:05:03
these sliders work in an interesting way
00:05:05
they don't affect your black point but
00:05:07
they do gradually affect the midtones
00:05:10
and your highlights and because her skin
00:05:12
is a bluish Hue We'll add a warmer color
00:05:15
temperature by pushing to the right so
00:05:18
this adjustment keeps our Black Point
00:05:19
locked down so we have natural looking
00:05:22
blacks but it'll gradually affect
00:05:24
everything else in the shot which will
00:05:26
help it to get back on track look at
00:05:28
this difference the last thing you could
00:05:30
do to perfect this is add a hue curves
00:05:33
go to Hue versus Hue which lets you
00:05:35
adjust the color of whatever color you
00:05:38
want and we're going to use the Picker
00:05:40
here to select this greenish color in
00:05:42
the background then we'll just adjust our
00:05:45
points here until that color has been
00:05:47
changed to something more pleasing we
00:05:49
could even use our Luma versus SAT curve
00:05:52
which lets you adjust the intensity of
00:05:54
color in different brightness values and
00:05:56
we could suck out that saturation from
00:05:59
these specular highlights in the back so
00:06:02
here is that Hue curves adjustment we
00:06:04
just made and here is our color balance
00:06:07
adjustment it is a pretty big difference
00:06:10
huh this shot is an example where the
00:06:12
new enhanced light and color feature
00:06:14
works pretty well it didn't for the
00:06:16
other shots though so his skin was off
00:06:18
the skin tone
00:06:20
line and now it's closer but it still
00:06:22
needs a slight tweak so for a slight
00:06:25
color adjustment to a specific color
00:06:28
let's bring up the Hu versus Hue curve
00:06:31
select his
00:06:32
skin and adjust it until it's on the
00:06:35
skin tone
00:06:39
line adjusting log footage is usually
00:06:42
easier because of the wider color gamut
00:06:44
and tonal range that you have with the
00:06:46
footage and if you don't grade log
00:06:47
footage stick with me because I have a
00:06:49
feeling that you might in the future I
00:06:52
purposefully set this shot with an
00:06:53
incorrect whitee balance which has made
00:06:55
my skin and the rest of the shot blue
00:06:58
with log footage it's usually as simple
00:07:00
as adding a color wheels placing it
00:07:04
before the imput lot turning on our crop
00:07:08
and Swinging our Global Hue slider away
00:07:10
from the blue until the skin is on the
00:07:13
skin tone line another important point
00:07:15
to bring up is that your Skin's Trace
00:07:17
should be 10 to 40% up the skin tone
00:07:21
line if you connect the yellow and red
00:07:24
Hue if it's more your skin is too
00:07:26
saturated and if it's less it needs more
00:07:30
saturation and once we turn off the crop
00:07:33
look at that it is a night and day
00:07:35
difference and you can do it so quickly
00:07:38
this shot probably has a warm cast due
00:07:40
to me setting my white balance
00:07:42
incorrectly as well as the ND filter
00:07:44
that I use but an adjustment is as
00:07:47
simple as adding a color wheels
00:07:48
adjustment before the input L cropping
00:07:52
into Jane's
00:07:53
skin swinging the global Hue slider away
00:07:57
from yellow which is the gross color
00:07:59
cast on the entire image and making sure
00:08:02
that her skin is about 10 to 40% up the
00:08:05
skin tone line and once we toggle the
00:08:08
crop off it is like magic a global Hue
00:08:11
adjustment is usually all you'll need
00:08:13
for log footage keyword usually though
00:08:16
each shot may need a different approach
00:08:18
so by knowing what you're looking for
00:08:20
and knowing the right way to adjust it
00:08:22
you can get professional looking shots
00:08:24
