Thread: How to reduce the greenish in LR

    Default How to reduce the greenish in LR

    Hi all,

    i am shooting with a 40D and 50mm 1.8 for this photo.
    used lightroom to boost the contrast and found that the skin tone becomes greenish.
    notice the lip's area?

    actually, i have been faced with this greenish issue for most of the photos. not sure why.
    i only boosted the contrast. can anyone advise? thanks!

    could be several things:
    > WB slightly off, when you boost contrast and saturation you can get a colour shift, bringing out more green
    > if you are shooting RAW then the LR camera profile could be slightly off for your camera

    solution to the problem:
    > correct the green tint through WB, HLS or camera settings and safe as preset
    > if you use RAW, create your own camera profile

    You can also adjust the colour balance with Photoshop.

    thanks!

    Michael: you mean to set the profile on the camera or LR?

    1. Are your walls painted green?

    2. Have you try using another flash?

    You can also try using a pale magenta filter over the lens.
