Hey guys and girls
I have an upcoming shoot where I need to light a few different office scenes in a way that looks modern, clean and uniform. The location we have has a good all around ambience that sits at approximately 4900-5800K throughout the day (this warmth comes from a large building across the road that bounces a lot of light into the space. Two space lights, balanced to daylight and sent through an overhead 8x8 butterfly with full silk, will light the boardroom scene, and for other scenes there will be a lot of practicals that will provide the motivation for areas where the windows wont be close enough to justify using them as a key source. These will be augmented with kinoflo's.
In order to maintain the near-future, clean, uniform look I have opted to got for using daylight balanced practical sources only. My natural inclination is to use LED lightbulbs in the light fixtures. These include standing lamps, frosted balls that litter one of the spaces, and desk lamps.
Here is my conundrum. I have searched the length and breadth of my city to find daylight LED's that come closer to 5000k so as to match the ambient light coming from the windows, however all I can find are 6000-7000k bulbs.
Since the windows will almost always be in shot (there are a lot of windows) and the ambient light in the room is quite warm, I am trying to figure out how to have a uniform color temperature between that light and the practicals.
Are there bulbs on the market that can achieve this slightly warmer temperature?
How would you go about matching these two different light sources.
Do any of the major industry LED manufacturers make daylight balanced bulbs, as Kino-flo does with their CFL's?
I'm not using the CFL's because I cant find any in time, and most of the practical fixtures are too small to fit them.
