Thanks to everyone for supporting the TIG through
the years.
Hi All,

18% gray is considered the reflectance value for flesh tone, blue sky and
green grass, (zone 5, I think) That coupled with a white chip and black chip
are the best friends of the colorist.

The Neutral back ground or backlight set up as Mr. Williams suggests is the
way to go. It can be 18% but by no means has to be.
