We've got a clear color cast here,…particularly for his skin tone.…There are no real neutrals here, but this image…is all about skin tone, so we're going to place…two color sample points on the skin tone…and we avoid cast shadows and reflections when we can.…And luckily, we've got good consistent lighting…across the face so a whole image adjustment…should respond very well.…All right, and then a quick evaluation of the RGB values…
