Here I am, struggling again with colors on my edits. I did a custom white balance setting with my R5 for the shooting using a color checker passport to get a neutral grey. Out of camera jpegs look great and true to what I see the person’s hair for example. Yet the raws, obviously, looks different but I don’t know where to start even.
The RGB matrix in the color calibration module is the way to go I suppose but I fail to grasp how I would create a setting which mimics the jpg at least closely in skin and hair tone. It doesn’t even need to look like the jpegs, a way to make it look more brown/less color x/ etc would be fine already. Too many degrees of freedom for a clueless person as me it seems…
Is there an easy way to create a matrix with given color values for lets say pixels? I don’t know if that makes sense or if I am just stupid to grasp basic concepts of color but this is driving me crazy. Any pointers in stuff to read or try would greatly be appreciated! I tried changing colors the way Nicolas Winspear describes in his youtube video about the module but it doesn’t seem to work for me the way I want it to.

the hair looks like washed out hay to me compared to the jpeg brownish tone
