Hi there,
i´m new in this forum, and crazy about the huge amount of info here!
I´m using 320T in a short this summer and intending to mix different color temps.
I want to correct some stuff in the shot and some in transfer.
My question is:
i´m using lots of fluorescents, and a couple of power floos, how should i correct them with minus green?
does power floo have heavy greenish look in tungsten stock? or are already corrected?
and in current cold fluorescents? and how much does tungsten lamps need of plus green to go up?
i should bring them to 3200K with cto + minus green? how much?
sorry if my english is not too good, and thank you very much in advance.
great forum!

If you're shooting with natural flourescents, you can use full minus green to take away the green spike that might be in the light. Depending on the number of lamps, you could also go out and get lamps that are the color temperature you want to shoot at, if that's tungsten, then it's 3200 K. They also make commercially available tungsten flo lamps that are a very warm 3000K or 2900K and look nice in some situations. Some lamps are much cooler than some of the mid-range greenish bulbs, so you definitely want to check whatever you're working with, and control it either with gel or with new bulbs.

I hope that answered your question...?

hi alejo,
with tungsten film, and fluo lamp, put a FL-B filter in front of your lens and forget the green look...
good shoot.
