Help With Filtersgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Photographers Communicating : One Thread
I could use some help with filters. I am no pro. I need to shoot some major family type events coming up. I won't be able to use flash. In one instance, I am sure that the lighting will be regular light bulbs, which a yellowish cast to everything. In the other instance, there will be flourescent lights, and I don't know if that will give a blue cast or not. Which color filter should I start with for each of these situations to compensate for the off colors I anticipate getting. Thanks.

If you are going to be shooting indoors with regular lights, you will need to use a blue filter.
For flourescent lights, use a magenta filter.
I'm not 100% on these, but you might be able to find webistes to help you out. Try Cokin, or this site: http://members.aol.com/tmcorner2/photo_h4.htm
Hope that helps!
