  1. We've built the lamp and it works but the focus tube that goes through the umbrella moves freely. Meaning we couldn't find a way to lock it in place in the slot which obviously is a problem because when you tilt the lamp the whole tube and light house slides down. Does anyone know how to lock it in place, are we missing something obvious? https://imgur.com/a/kk8c7c0
  2. https://imgur.com/a/cTQon5n It's a mix of a warm color and green right? Realistically, if I were to film for this look, should I white balance so that the lights lean towards a orange-y hue and then increase the green in grade later? How would you go about achieving this look?
  3. Yeah I figure I could do it that way, but at the same time I want to learn how to use the tools of the trade. We're handed a budget (this is a film school project) so in kind of don't want to do DIY solutions if I can avoid it. Those solutions I can save for private projects! Thanks for the suggestion though. Meanwhile, just a curiosity. Does color shift if it's bounced off a white surface? Or will a white surface, being neutral, not affect the color of the light?
  4. Ahh that sounds reasonable. Do you know what strength I'd need for the plus green gel? We don't really have the budget to buy multiple rolls and we don't live near any place that sell them over the counter so there's no way for me to actually see it in person.
  5. Ohh hey, thanks for helping! Would be great hearing it from the source haha
  6. https://imgur.com/a/ydSrwOt I want the green of the bathroom with the warmth of the outside lights. If I white balance at 5600K and put the warm lights at 2900K or 3200K. Then I put a gel on 5600K lamps that shift them towards green. Would that do the trick? What kind of gel would I need then?
  7. I'm planning on shooting a scene where I cover the lens in a half plus green gel to achieve the look I want. What is the difference between doing that and changing the tint value of the camera to get a more green image?
  8. https://imgur.com/a/XWC16im Here are the pictures. Yeah, I'll try ordering 1/4 gels then.
  9. Apologies, wrote it in a rush. Basically I'm uncertain which gel I should buy to accomplish the look. The lamps in the garage have a temperature of 3600K. I figure that I'll need to white balance for a colder temperature so that the 3600K lamps in the garage appear warmer but I don't know which gel to buy to achieve that yellow/green tint from the lighting.
  10. I'm filming a scene in a garage and I want the lighting to have this kind of green/yellow quality. The lamps in the garage have a temperature of 3600k. I figure I need to make the lamps warm and then give them a green tint. So I'll try white balancing the camera at something like 4500k-5000k. Then I'll put a green filter in front of the camera. I was wondering if I should just for the 3600k filter or if there be some consideration to buying some other gel? I have this gel test sheet.
  11. I'm writing an essay in school about white balancing in digital cameras and white balancing with color filters. We want to establish why digital cameras have a native white balance and why a camera with a native WB of 5600k has more noise in the image when balanced for 3200k. I figured that we're talking about spectral sensitivity and that in general CMOS sensors are less sensitive to blue light. So when filming in daylight situations the sensor doesn't have to compensate the gain for the blue channel and thus not getting as much noise. Is that correct? Does anyone have a good source thro
  12. And that would create this kind of quality to the light? If I have som Kino Flos with 5500K tubes, could I combine gels to create that look as well? And if I were to buy practicals what would I need to think about? Because I'd prefer to have some in the frame. I live in Sweden so light frequencies can vary between Europe and the US from what I know. We usually film things in 25fps here with 180 shutter angle (what I've heard is that with European frequencies we need to use 172,8 shutter when we use 24fps). There's so many light tubes to choose from and many of them are LEDs now adays. I d
  13. Hello! I'm working on a student film and I want the film to look very dirty and underground. I like the green/blue tint of florescents as well as that yellow tint from sodium lamps? My school only has LED lights. Is my best bet to gel these lamps? What gels would I need to obtain the right tint in that case? Or should I try finding pratical florescents? We'll be shooting on an Alexa Mini.
  14. I'm writing an essay and comparing optical artefacts between different lenses in different price ranges. Being able to compare these requires me to determine what a desirable result is and what an undesirable result is. Logically an artefact is a defect so it should be undesirable, but as well all know lens flares are a commonly used artefact in movies. Is there a way to determine what a good "lens flare" is?
