I have a script which I want to direct into a microbudget feature. I think the T2 night look would serve nicely for it, but I will be shooting on real streets, using a lot of the natural light, especially for the wide shots.
Every street where I live is lit with low pressure sodium lights. In order to get that T2 look I will have to dial the kelvin down to 1500 to 2000, making the orange, white. This will also add a lot of blue in the shot. I have done several tests, and it looks not bad, but a lot advise against it cause it is desaturated, which is true.
Is it okay to have this desaturated look at night, where as all the rest of my scenes in the day and indoors will not be desaturated at all?
