Re: Use the RGB Histogram when shooting

Have you tried keeping an eye on the RGB Histogram on your D800e when shooting? If you see the red channel is way to the right, use some negative EV compensation to pull it back.  Then in post, you can push the reds just a bit to the right.

There's a short article on this.

Expose For the Red Channel

Best of luck, and happy shooting, Markus

Why use a simple solution when you can play scientist and make it much more complex than it really is
