Hello everyone,

I'm going to be shooting a scene where it's supposed to look very warm and candle lit. I chose to try something a little different, so I picked the 7205 250D with tungsten lights to hopefully give it a warm look. Now I'm not too sure if it's going to look too red? I've never had experience with this before so I'm not sure the results. Please tell me if anyone has had experience with shooting daylight film with tungstens.

A little more orange than yellow.

I haven't tried using only tungsten on a daylight-balanced film, but I do like mixing in some pure tungsten in a daylight-scene, without filtering. I've attached an uncorrected framegrab from a recent short. The scene was shot on S16mm Kodak Vision2 250D, and in the picture you will see a man who's face is entirely lit by tungsten, while the general ambience of the room is daylight. Maybe this will give you a rough idea of the color.
