Here is the color version. This is a tighter crop of "Peeking Over the Top" in the same folder. All of these shots have too much red, in my opinion, but I am hesitant to start modifying skin tones, given the difficulties that I usually run into when I try that. --Lannie
Lannie: I like the B&W version best, I agree the color is too red. I think you did quite well given what you had tough lighting conditions. Tom
Or should it be "Study of Color in Black and White"?
Lannie Nice series all together, I like the B/W tonality is better. I know how hard it is photographing performers and audience at a show with hard light condition. I tried to reduce the red and also the grain in it. What do you think?
Thanks, Pnina--I just saw your comment. No, this is not quite it, either. This is why I prefer B&W to color adjustments where skin tones are concerned. There are such subtle nuances of skin tones, after all. I mess up even when I try to color correct my own grand children. Still, it is a good effort on your part, and, yes, I had the ISO up too high and got some grain, but it was a pretty dark auditorium. I wish that you could see the natural range of the hues in the skin of these college kids. Everyone is just a bit different in color, here, there, and everywhere. --Lannie
