    When you see people like beckham in adverts their skin looks bronzed..how do you do that.

    Dear Peter,

    I can think of several ways:




    Filtration/colour balance

    Post-production (including at the printing stage)

    Slight under-exposure

    (In B+W) ortho film or a weak blue filter

    These can be combined if necessary -- and if there's enough money involved, it will be deemed necessary.

    Certainly there would be a make-up artist on an adverising shoot. The lighting will be controlled to the minutest degree and the "raw material" is likely in excellent form to start with. Plus, as Roger said, post production will be thorough.

    I have never used one but there are software packages that offer to enhance the appearence of skin. It wouldn't suprise me if they had a "tanned" option.

    Don't forget, Beckham lives in LA and works/worked outdoors so he is going to pick up a bit more of a tan than your usual denizen of London or Manchester. :D

    Bronzed complexion! That's their problem, skin cancer isn't exactly rare.

    That's correct. As a general rule, if you see somebody in Manchester with that 'bronzed' look it's more likely to be rust than a tan!

    Cheers, Jeff

    Well I guess he is trusting that Orange is the new Black...

    Yes. The Saltire isn't that colour for nothing. Up here we start out blue, and gradually warm up to a cold white in summer. Unless of course we're caught out on one of the three unbearably hot days that sometimes occur in mid May. Then we sport attractive patches of blisteringly pillar box red on a dappled blue and white background. Red, white and blue. There's a message in there somewhere ;-)

    I work outdoors and the best I can manage is a dull red with spots of bright red horsefly bites.

    A little tan with the red sunlight during or right before sunset time
