Coloured light and costumes

Recommended Posts

Hey dear community,


I'll be shooting a feature in about a months time. 95% of the film will take place inside a dark warehouse with two small windows in the top of one side with ambient daylight slipping in. The director is very specific about the fill being of a greenish tint.


My question is how this green light should affect the choice of costumes. I made some small tests and noticed that red costumes will appear as black. But is there anything else I should be aware of?


Many thanks in advance!

If you plan on having the lighting hues be flamboyant then consider putting your talent in costumes with low saturation to avoid color clashing.
