I am wondering how other photographers handle people with really pale skin. Not so much the porcelain skinned beauty models that we often see, but people with not so porcelain skin that is just not at all tanned. A lot of the time this skin really shows up the blueness of veins especially in areas like the legs.

I'm just wondering if anyone has some tricks to handle this photographically rather than just adding color to them in Photoshop and turning up the gaussian blur.

Thanks for the input,

Daryl

Judging from your portfolio, it would seem you have a great grasp on how to handle skin tone.... what I do is generally reduce the lighting a bit or add a gold reflector(s) to add a bit of "warmth". It doesn't always work, but 9x's out of 10 it will.

Shoot set to "cloudy" and use a gold reflector...




Or use some amber gel...




Or use tungsten lights, but don't set for tungsten...




Just some thoughts that popped into my head, I don't really have a lot of good examples, because the majority of the people that I shoot take visible vascularity as a point of pride, a sign that they're competition ready.

Thanks for the tips John.

When I was talking about veins I wasn't meaning like what you see on your arms when you are "ripped". I was referring to the blue you see under the skin when your skin is really pale and you have no tan or if you just have thin skin. I have kind of wondered if they make some sort of makeup that covers that or something.

You have some pretty great work there. I would like to shoot some female body builders sometime. I would really like to do a fantasy type shoot along the lines of Boris Vallejo's work.

Thanks again,
Daryl
