p.1 #1 · speed light white balance.


If shooting an hour before the golden hour the ambient light is some what yellowish mixed with white. If I'm shooting with a speed light what would be the best way to get a correct white balance in this kind of lighting. I shot last week and the light on the subject was really white as compared to the ambient. Is there a way to balance the white balance...would a CTO gel do the trick and if so what should the white balance on the camera be?

A half or full CTO would do nicely, and I'd keep the WB on daylight if you want to preserve that warm look.

You might also experiment with a Bastard Amber gel. Sometimes I find a CTO too orange.

A Straw would work, too. If you can't find Bastard Amber or Straw, a quarter CTO would be good. An hour before the "golden hour" seems a bit too early for a full CTO. You might go out a day ahead and do some tests with whichever gels you can get.
