Questions about the optimal white balance under difficult lighting conditions
Frage von Auf Achse: Januar 2010
Keep in touch!
I have filmed in the last days of old factories scrapped in the late afternoon light. Especially in combination with some places, more or less snow I noticed a distinct blue cast with the manual white balance is easily corrected. When I see a bigger position or perspective change I made had the feeling that a recently White balance is needed, because once again, a slight blue tint or too little but there was blue. After securing new White balance has voted blue, but for example. the red of the factory wall was now different from the last White balance and at the last position / perspective. When I later cut that is just as striking as the blue cast. The whole thing we further through the rapidly changing light in the direction of Dawn tightened! My question is: Is it in such difficult lighting conditions, better balance in ALL Positions / update a new perspective of White to make it better or less to make white balance and a slight blue cast in favor of the uniformity of the purchase to take any other colors? Are there any other tricks for white balance in tricky lighting conditions? Cameras: Canon XH A1s and HV40
Thank you and regards, Auf Achse

Instead of making the White Balance on the ground again and again, it would make sense to film continuously with a color temperature. The advantage is that it can be corrected easily in post the colors because the color balance is not sudden changes made by a local White Balance. Thus, a continuous transition arises even into the twilight, you can use either the effect or may simply correct synonymous largely by automation in the NLE.

Hello, So (I worked on such occasions, with an attachment fitted filter is a semi-transparent white milk glass) But then again at each new position or light White Balance. Since the camera but 2 memory for the White Balance is going very fast, because I often have to change only the memory. I hope I have made myself understood. MfG

Is it in the late afternoon sun at a winter dawn, is this a case of mixed natural light, the stamp of the recording would not only impossible, but a sin synonymous. Most of the light comes from the red horizon, only the snow reflects the blue sky.
If that still does not like it, it is in the color correction very easy to neutralize the snow. The result then has its own very surreal charm, is in fact appear in any case, of course.

Thanks for your answers and suggestions!
@ deti correct: Over the blue cast to the color temperature is a good idea, I still have this possibility is not considered, and I'll try next time! The fact meets my needs exactly: When filming began, the correct color, intermittent mild changes take Sonnuntergang Purchase and include the color with.
@ Axel: You're right, sunset light eradicate WOULD be a sin, this pleasant reddish light, but I do not mean. The unpleasant blue cast that I would not notice my every synonymous - Professional
