    Joshua,

    Maybe you're right. I'll just leave it alone from this point on.

    Yes. A few important things and thankfully you'll notice Tim shot Haley in a variety of ambient lighting conditions so you can get a nice idea of her natural complexion.

    People's skin varies in color all across their body, even across smaller surface areas like the entirety of a face there's a large medley of hue changes based on skin color, thickness, transparency, health, sun, etc. The impact of sub surface scattering for instance varies on all skin tones because everybody has sort of a unique thing going on here.

    In the case of the specific shot you are referencing, what you're seeing in that lighting setup is essentially radiosity or the ambient reflected light hitting her skin unevenly. In this case there are easy tells in the frame that this is what exactly is going on.

    Tim is filming in the shade and playing with the ambient light bouncing around in the shadow. It's actually a highly appealing way to film subjects as color has a subtle and varied impact on surfaces. Similar to late day when the sky dome becomes a notable light source, light dancing around the shade is where Tim is finding his light.

    In a much more rigid studio setup you would have more control over this. But more or less when you have daylight bouncing on warm, cool, green, or whatever color surfaces you are going to get a large variety of colored light sources on your subject. You can sort of think of this similarly to using a gold reflected versus a silver or white one in this case.

    Your color correction is "correcting" for that color cast, which equally makes it valid and that is indeed one part of the job of colorist. However if Tim had his director hat on and wanted to maintain that golden yellow light and push it even further, you'd be enhancing what is happening naturally in frame.

    Near the end of Tim's clips in the edit there's a reverse angle that produces a cooler reflected light which is far less yellow and is another tell of what the lighting conditions were.

    Thanks Phil and David for your valuable knowledge and insight on this matter!! You both have much more experience with the properties of light and lighting than I ever will. My thinking was usually when I see something shaded, in this case the face of the female talent by her hair in the scene posted, that it would usually appear more blue than warm especially since the main lighting source, the Sun in this case, seems to be behind her and to the right. So it just surprise me that it looked so warm.


    I saw the foliage and the wood of the Bridge, which David pointed out. I just expected a more even color cast for good or bad from the colors of the foliage or the wood from the bridge.


    The rest of Tim's video looked really good especially the skintones in the other scenes, Red has done an excellent job with the skintones in this camera and will probably improve even further before the final Release Version of the Komodo. I'll just chalk it up to the lighting in these specific scenes.

    Tim,

    Thanks for time you spent in the making of this video and all of the other stills and videos you've posted!! I don't do Facebook unfortunately. Is there any other way to acquire the R3D's you've posted there?

    Yeah, the link no longer works... or is that because you need to be a member of the group to get access to the .r3ds?

    Was looking at some footage posted yesterday or today of the C300mkIII and this looks 100X more "filmic". It's a more "solid" image with more depth/dimension(not Dof). The Canon, despite the color and skin tones being fine, just looked so much like "video". Almost like everything was a thin cut-out.

    Agreed. Thanks for the test Tim. Would greatly appreciate R3Ds on REDUSER.

    I have to say, I've been impressed by pretty much all I've seen from this camera.
    The color and the highlight roll off looks very refined. If RED can build on what they already established, all the better.

    Now the trick is lining up the work during Covid to get a couple these.

    Looks great Tim, Thanks for sharing!!!

    As for the yellow tint, I'm going to have to side with the experts. Looks like bounced light.
