Sepia coloured practicals

Recommended Posts


I'm currently planning for a shoot which is set in the 70's. The film has a very practical heavy interior with a daylight lit window. I'm looking to bring the white/yellowish sepia tone to all of the practicals without affecting the cooler daylight from the window. 

I'm posting some references from Vinyl which is what I'm looking for.


Anyone has any tips how to achieve this in camera on a tight budget?

Thanks 🙂

If shooting digital, I sometimes like to set my white balance to 4300 when shooting in mixed lighting conditions. That way the daylight goes cooler and the tungsten naturally goes warmer in camera. I also have a few custom LUTS that push tungsten towards a golden yellow. There are many ways to achieve this look, those are just two options!

Get higher wattage bulbs than normal (say PH213s) and then throw them all on dimmers and dim them down. That's really what it looks like they did in the image.
