Mixing Bulbs on Kino Flo's
Posted 24 November 2010 - 05:48 PM
Im a student filmmaker and im plotting for a piece ill be filming after christmas. I have been planning on lighting a certain scene with a few 2ft/4ft Kino's, my idea for a scene is too camera balance for 3200k with the kino flos at 3200k for the most part but replacing a few of the bulbs with 5600k temp ones to try and give pools of blue within this scene.
I am still learning and experimenting with cinematgraphy so i hope my logic with what i want to achieve is right,
My question is has anyone on here tried this before? Does it work well? Is there any video examples on the web of the lighting style im trying to achieve i could see?

Jonathan- i dont exactly want to use just daylight tubes and add CTO's to cool it all down. i want a mixture of color balanced light with some pool coming in from the non-balanced tubes.
However i will try the tungsten tubes on daylight balanced cameras to see how well it brings out the fleshtone.

If you want pools of different colour temperatures, it would be better to use lights that have different CT tubes. Mixing the tubes gives a particular light a warmer or cooler look, but it's not the same as differing pools effect.
