So here's the deal. I may have the chance to shoot a portrait of a semi-prominent figure here in San Francisco, in his office. I plan on simply posing him at his desk for a wide shot. I'm counting on a sunny day in the city if I'm lucky, which means I should have daylight streaming in through the pair of windows behind his desk.
I am shooting Kodak 7217 200T, so I plan on leaving the daylight uncorrected. However, in an attempt to pull a semi-Storaro effect, I wanted to backlight my subject with a regal purple. But I know I'm going to get a good amount of backlight from my uncorrected daylight source.
So, is there anything anyone could suggest to alter the color temp of the daylight so it shows up purple on the back of my subject? I want to leave the windows hot and blue, so I don't want to gel them with ND or anything.
I have access to some nook's that are rigged to sit on the floor. I was thinking of gelling those with a certain grade of CCRed to mix with my daylight source and manipulate it into the purple end of the spectrum. But I'm going to play around with an HMI, DVcam balanced to tungsten and various gels to see what could possibly get me close to what I'm looking for.
Below is a basic MSPaint sketch of my setup, any suggestions will be appreciated. Oh, and I don't have a budget for testing this out beforehand, so I'm hoping to alleviate any concerns through research.
