Hi everybody,

 

Here I am with my rookie questions, I just want to know what kind of light is used  here as fill light? and what temperature does it have? is the greenish color because they used a Gel or its WB trick, or Color graded in post ?

From his eye reflection is looks like a single light that's been balanced to the camera below and to the right of his face, and I'd say the 'greenish fill' is coming from a separate light behind with a greenish/blueish gel, most likely bouncing of something as it's pretty soft.

This 'keep the skin tones but have the fill a teal type color' comes up in action films all the time.I can't give you an exact gel number that has been used, someone else might know what's industry standard.

There's definitely been Colour Grading to accentuate this.
