    I am having an issue with skin tone, I keep losing the proper skin tone, I use a Sekonic lightmeter but my photos come out overexposed or underexposed and I lose my skin tone. Any suggestions?

    Are you measuring incident light, strobed light, or reflected light? Which Sekonic light meter do you have?

    If you're using lights, light placement also factors in.

    google skin tone by the numbers.. tutorials. I would suggest you need to learn how to use your Sekonic.. they are usually very accurate. Post some shots with shoot data.. maybe we can help..
