Guys I do black and white film and color video. But NO color film. I want to change that and do some color film. But I am scared of the learning curve to get color right. I white balance my video and dig stills cameras a lot. I like the cooler look. I have an ever-so-lightly pink tinged card that gets me nice blue sky but no overly desaturated skin tones or blue tinted shadows. I shoot a ton of sports. Mostly high sunlight. But increasingly having to deal with stadium lights. Lets forget about stadium lights for now. I'll quit photography if I try to wrap my head around getting that right for film regularly right now. What cc filter would you toss me out of your bag to get me a starting point for late morning shoots? Thanks in advance!

 

PS frame grabs would be awesome! Thanks again!

Try shooting a gray card with a Tiffen 812 on the lens and then have the colorist time it out. That might give you the blue you are looking for.
