More skin tone samples from the Sony a7 III, this time shot with the Voigtlander 65mm f/2 lens. Mixed lighting daylight/fluorescent, ISO 800. No color correction in post: I just pulled the shadows down a bit. To be quite honest, I’m pretty satisfied with both Caucasian and Asian skin tones straight out of the camera. I shot these in PP1 using Paul Leeming’s recommended settings, but no LUT applied. I’m also very impressed with the accurate white balance, the easy to read chunky zebras, and the incredibly precise focus peaking, making shooting with manual lenses a pure joy.
My biggest fear before purchasing the a7 III were the skin tones. I half dreaded they’d be a nightmare to work with. But having shot with the camera a bit, I must say the skin tones aren’t bad at all, especially since I hardly did any color correction in post. Sorry, the screen grabs aren’t masterpieces or anything!
