So I want to shoot a scene with a candelabra providing key light and I'm using a 650 and a 300, each on a flickering dimmer, to provide key light on the actor's face from slightly different angles...
So the color temperature will be pretty warm since I've got a white balance effectively around 4000K by eye due to a long story...so this should look very orange and pretty hard--like candle light. But I want that CTS rather than CTO look with the nice yellow hue. But I can't lose more than a third or quarter of a stop. What gel do I buy? Or am I wrong in adding a bit of yellow to emulate candles?
