My monitor is calibrated. And low contrast does not allways look good. It's when you add some contrast the skin tone is tested to see how it holds up in the highlights and shadows. An evenly lit, flat face with no highs and lows is not only boring but also very easy for any sensor to handle. The challenging part is when you try to squeeze out that extra texture and utilize the highs and lows. It's then things usually starts looking wierd. Hope your're following me

I don't think he know how see colors, or his monitor is not calibtrated. Increasing contrast is the worst way to deal with skintones.

On my recently calibrated/profiled monitor the skin tones look way too red for my taste, but to each his own
