Matching Color Temperature on Location

(3 customer reviews)

One of the most common mistakes photographers make is when the color temperature of their artificial light and the ambient light don’t match. In this lesson, Felix takes us to a church with lots of warm light, and then an office with a lot of cool light. Watch as he explains how he changes the color temperature of his flash to match the environment he’s shooting in to create cohesive and natural-looking portraits.

“For colour temperature adjustment I have always used the Lee technical packs... simple and wide ranging whilst being widely available http://www.leefilters.com/lighting/technical-list.html”

“Hi Felix, Can you explain a bit about the reverse mounted Elinchrom Octabanks? It appears that the modifier used for this shoot can be used both reversed (your approach ) but also with the light from behind. Do you need a specific adapter to do this? and will it work with something like a profoto B10? Thanks , Matt”

“This was great! I have one question. Did you adjusted the color temperature in camera to 3800K when using the CTO gels?”
