Hi you, I have a specific question about my film look. I have to do some night shots under tungsten lights. I want to shoot it very neutral, because the production value is very low and I want to have most options in postproduction. I have some tungesten lights wich I want to foil with amber and mix this with some tungsten lights (white or 1/4 CTB) for moon light. Now my question: I don't know, what will happen with the amber foiled lights in post, if I do a color correction in the more cyan direction, like in this test foto. Will the amber lights get more brownish? I have no Idea. Maybe somebody of you have an idea. Thanks a lot and greetings from Germany. Alex

hi,
you havent mentioned anything about the stock you will be using. It again depends on the fact that how much warmth you need to retain in the post.

because you have myriad of options and control when doing color correction digitally, there aren't really the hard & fast rules of color temperature manipulation like when dealing with emulsion. the only real way to resolve your issue would be to do some quick tests.

hope this helps,
jaan
