Need help with color banding?
1

I'm looking at what appears to be color banding across some children's foreheads. Doesn't happen with all children or any adults, or backgrounds or anything else, but when it does, I'm having a hard time cleaning it up in post, without losing the natural light/shadows falloff and making the entire face flat like a pancake, using basic adjustment brush tools. I'm not pushing any sliders too much in either direction during normal editing, and it's visible SOOC, but I don't recall it being visible on the camera LCD (need to double check). Using LR standard profile, last rev LR (have not updated to their newest release yet with the new profiles).

Anyone know why this is happening? I know D7200 predecessors had issues with color banding before, could this be tied to that?
