In the beginning of my filmmaking career I've always wondered how to get better skin tones from any camera. Color grading to get better skin tones doesn’t have to be overwhelming, and regardless of the camera you are filming with or the monitor you are color grading on, you can get better skin tones with this simple workflow.
Keep in mind that this is my personal color grading skin workflow in Final Cut Pro and you are certainly encouraged to experiment, but obviously following the skin tone line rule that I mentioned.
This will work in Final Cut ProX, Adobe Premiere, and Davinci Resolve, or just about any video editor with scopes. This technique will also work with Sony cameras, Canon, Nikon, and Fuji, just to name a few.
