Im new here so thanks in advance to anyone offering their help.
Here is my problem
I have a Nikon D300 and I am a wedding/portrait photographer I have found my images shot Jpeg are very very saturated with skin tones being extremeley red almost crazy looking. Here is my set up and colour management settings etc..below so what on earth is going wrong ?? I would really appreciate your help
1. My camera is set to portrait mode saturation default sharpness +4 W/B Auto the most recent shots were on a sunny day but not a hot day
2. My Monitor is a HPw19ev stationed in a nautral envoironment
3. My monitor is caliberated with gretamacbeth eye one
4. CS3 is set up correct with colour management set to working space
5. I let photoshop manage print etc..
6. I know you are not suposed to use the monitors profile for proof viewing but if I soft proof using the monitors profile generated by eye one and tick the preserve RGB numbers box the image looks a little flatter but more normal like especially skin.
I have the Luminous camera to print Video (which is great) and have studied there settings so I understand mostly how things work.
If anyone wants a sample image to view on their PC let me know and I will email you.
One final thing which is crazy. If I open the image in Nikon NX2 capture and look at the thumbnail it looks OK but when I open it up fully by its side looking at the enlarged thumbnail and opened photo the colours look totaly diffent to each other. Does this mean the thumbnails in NX2 are not colour managed and the opened one is
? I must add the opened one looks the same as in CS3
This is really driving me nuts and has been for sometime, My friend has a D300 and it seems the same with his camera
Looking forward to some replies.
