Exposing for skin tones on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K using Blackmagic RAW

When I’m capturing video of people, a primary concern is getting the skin tones exposed correctly. When working with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K (BMPCC 4K) and Blackmagic RAW (BRAW), what I’m finding is that using Blackmagic’s false color mode along with their recommended exposure values for skin tones, along with some minor tweaks, works very well.

Since I also use the Atomos Shinobi for framing, focus and exposure, I needed to map the Blackmagic false color recommendations to the Shinobi false color scheme. Note that if you don’t use the Atomos Shinobi, then you can use the BMPCC 4K false color mode and information below for exposing skin tones.
