I've had a question for a while about dealing with darker skinned subjects. Most of my student work on film has been with Caucasian talent and I have done a few music videos but always on digital and I find that digital can read a bit better in the blacks then film.

Where my question arises is in exposure compensation. Usually outdoors I may underexpose a face by a stop in sunny backlight but when the skin is of darker reflectance is this still acceptable? I tell myself that naturally a darker face is darker then a lighter face in such a situation. Of course I should double check with my reflected spot to see where it falls. But since I haven't been in such a situation I was wondering if I could get some advice on what people do with exposure and such.

Thanks
