Lighting a short in Bristol Next weekend, and wanted to ask for some advice. I've read through the forums and although I found similar posts, none of them answered my questions.
Basically the location is a hair salon with a massive window at the front of the shop with those long vertically rotating blinds (handy!)
The salon has no practicals, except a number of manky flourescent lights in the ceiling. They have a nasty tungsten colour.
I really want to just forget about the house lights, and make use of the fact that the script calls for a morning scene. I thought about blasting a HMI through the window and rotating blinds to hide it. I want the light to look a bit yellow, just like early morning light. (not twilight early, but sunny early)
Do I need to gel the light to get that 'yellow' look, or can I just roll the White balance on the DSR-570 up enough to make the light warmer???
If it's a gel issue, what would you recommend?
