    Mixed Lighting

    Do the compact flo's have any green to them? Also if you do mix the color temps a bit and try to time the blue out, will that work? Or do you get into a situation where as you time the blue out you start changing the tungsten temp. Thanks

    Mixed Lighting

    Splitting Exposure

    Thank You For THe Help It Makes More Sense Now. On location nothing is a perfect 18% middle grey so I can see that when the sun is behind a person is shadowed and the background is bright. Or if the sun is above there is less of a shadow casted, and mostly the illumination front, behind and side...

    Splitting Exposure

    Genreally speaking if your under a contrast situation where your ratio is 4:1 or higher and you want an exposure that is acceptable is it best to split? This is assuming you don't have other light sources to lower the ratio. I came across a situation where I was shooting outdoors (color neg.)...
