    Poor spectrum lights (like older / cheaper LEDs) will exaggerate the problem. As will lack of exposure. Test the same model under your LEDs in a low-light shot and then take them outside under daylight. Also be wary of old / poor NDs and Polas.

    Yes, shit lights is 90% the fault when skin looks poor. The camera is made for clean full spectrum k5600 everything else is dragging down the performance. Tungsten is not optimal if you dont filter for it. And sheep or household leds are clamping colors for sure. A good way to see how good / bad your leds are is to look at their reflection trough the read surface of a CD, if you see a full rainbow, they are usually quite good. But normally you will see the rainbow being jagged and color fields missing in it. That means some colors are simply not there and will make skin and other things look clamped.
