mixed lighting situation
Posted 10 March 2006 - 12:58 PM
So our considerations revolve on dealing with this mixed lighting source. Do we let our daylight source, go blue? ( we will have direct sunlight coming in during the morning on the north east side, so we will shoot that area out first and then put our units there to try and mimic that source) and try to correct the flourescents, while CTBing our units? and then time out the daylight?
or should we put plus green on our units, and 85 filter on the lens? and time out the flourescents?
is there anyway to attempt to measure color temp without a meter? Can you correct flourescents?
our limitations are we have no gels big enough to correct these windows, our biggest units are 1200 HMI and 575 HMI and we cannot switch out the tubes in the gym.
If both of these solutions seem to work depending on the the desired look, then am I safe in saying that timing out the daylight, while attempting to correct flourescents would probably have a cooler look and maybe even a sicklier loo...and the timing out of the flourescents would have a warmer look?
Thanks for your input

Your HMI's will be perfect here (no correction required) and then you can buy some CTB for your tungsten sources.
Another option is to just kill the flourescents all together. You might have enough fill coming in through the thick glass with the aid of some carefully placed HMI's.
The sun will look great pouring into the gym but you have to have a perfect sunny day and then be ready to shoot at the exact time when the sun is in position.

If you need the ambient light to go up, turn them on, and then use CTB and HMI's on your subjects.
