Matching Color and Tone in uncontrollable Lighting Situations

Wedding photographers are frequently confronted with uncontrollable lighting situations. However, at the end of the day it is nice to deliver pictures which look and feel like one big series (also in with respect to color and tone).

Lightroom offers a pipette for white balance and perfectly supports the x-rite color checker passport. Additionally I can transfer setting from one photo to another. Yet it is not possible to define one or more parts of two different photos (taken under slightly different lighting conditions) and get lightroom to match these photos in color and tone. Such parts could be either clothing or other elements in the background.

It’s just a time consuming job to get photos to match in color and tone. I would love a feature helping me with this annoying task…

    More important than clothing and elements in the background: Each person’s skin tone should match for the entire series….

    ON1’s color management is incomplete without a way to calibrate for the spectral sensitivity of the individual camera’s sensor. This is important for anyone who wants to reproduce the true colors photographed vs just making the photo “look good”. It is typically done by shooting the X-Rite CCPP in the same light as the subject and using the CCPP plugin within RAW Processing program (e.g. Lightroom, Photoshop and a couple others) by using this photo’s response to 18 known ‘standard’ colors to correct the colors in other subject photos taken under ~the same light for the camera’s incorrect sensor response. This is NOT the same as setting the “color temperature” correctly.
