Hi All,

when shooting in portrait mode I have noticed that the Jpeg colors are not as great as I would like them to be (A bit bland) especially for Skin tones thus find a have to Edit the RAWs to get a bit more coloring? Which settings can I adjust in Camera to improve the Jpegs?

Thanks in advance

Nick :)

Shooting in "portrait mode" with a 5D3??? There is no portrait mode on mine or are you referring to the "Picture Style"?
I shoot RAW only and post process in ACR - I have the camera set to "Neutral" and correct colours and - when doing people - skin tones manually.
You can create a "custom" setting in Picture Style where you can tweak colour tone, sharpness, saturation and contrast.
But why waste card space on shooting RAW+JPEG when you have to PP your shots anyway....

sorry.. Yes, picture style..
I don't post process "all" shots, so would like to have Jpegs good from the offset and PP some shots.. Thanks

You can find two more portrait related styles at http://web.canon.jp …turestyle/file/​index.html (external link). these can be installed in camera, or pulled up in DPP software and applied. But as others have stated you can create your own style as well.

Just go to User 1, choose portrait as your basis, then tweak the settings from there a bit to your own taste.

Converting raw portraits in DPP, I normally use Landscape or Faithful, depending on lighting.

I've tried Portrait several times, and never liked it. Yes bland, as you say, and too pink.

Although you can tweak a Picture Style, it's better to take for your basis a PS that's closer to your desired rendition.

Sure, but this thread is about the portrait style, so I wasn't making any assumptions that other styles would have been better.
