Hi I'm shooting in 10 days comercial in a futbol stadium . We are planning to support our light with the HQI Lamps from the stadium . Does somebody knows the color temperature? Or if they are more blueish or greener?

Hi,

 

I would assume modern stadiums to be equiped with good quality lighting..

 

http://en.wikipedia....m_quartz_iodide

 

wikipedia suggests that temperature can vary depending on composition, so hope that they used same type of bulbs for the whole stadium.

 

I'm quite a newbie when it comes to lighting, so it gives me ideas what I should be reading, but I would white balance on stadium lights, look at the camera temperature and green/magenta shift and would match my lights accordingly..

 

Interesting, looking forward to read some replys :)

It's going to depend on what lights they have in there, which bulbs. Your best bet would be to get into the stadium during a night game with a color meter which'll give you all the information you'd need as you'd need to match your lights with the stadium lights, and then probably throw a filter on the camera.
