Of course, the chart may no reflect actual skins reflective spectra. There might be some errors in some patches (I don't have a spectrophotometer to check). There might be some operator error (it's a difficult target to shoot due to glare and I struggled at the beginning). But what Lumariver tells from the target shot is in line with what I noticed before I started making profiles...

Does this help you understand what skin spectra look like?

Three skin readings, face, palm of hand, back of hand, for two people, and two different CC24 cards.


Hello Jim!

Thanks for sharing. Always interesting to lear from you.

To the layman I'm, the CC24 seems pretty close to the real thing. I'm pleasantly surprised.

I would not be so quick to declare that. First, there is a noticeable dip in the green area, where our eyes have the highest sensitivity. Second, we are looking at curves and trying to extrapolate from here how close those reflectivities would look to us under various lighting conditions; and those are different things.
