Like father like son..... HANDSOME!

Editing skin tones can be a serious issue sometimes for me! I have a great method using curves and basically hitting a ratio looking at the CMYK numbers. That works great for caucasian skin tones, or should I say I have a great ratio for caucasian skins but do not for brown skin. If you know what I am talking about and use this method please share the CMYK numbers/ratios you use for brown skins pls!!!! I still find the color here looks quite true and warm. The paper in the background is grey and looks grey to me. I played with the color balance and then believe it or not use the warming filter adjustment layer! Go figure. It worked for this image thank goodness, not sure if I should use that as a rule of thumb....
