A scene solely with red lighting in Lighting Posted February 9, 2021 On 2/1/2021 at 5:40 PM, David Mullen ASC said: A deeply colored-lit shot would not have high exposures if you want to retain the saturation, so don't worry about the waveform not showing a high signal level -- in monochrome, you'd expect a red-lit face to be more like 18% grey at the brightest, probably a stop under that. If you want a face to be lit red, light it that way. Try try and shoot 444 or raw if possible. Pull any diffusion filters, keep the light at a contrasty angle to improve sharpness.

Have been busy with shooting but thank you for the responses! In the end I did shoot it in red and I tried keeping in mind not going by false color. It wasn't a very significant scene but I really liked the results so thank you for input!
