understanding color balance is great…

once you understand it, learning to work with it is relatively easy.

when doing web advert videos, I have a few small tips to kiss it (keep it simple stupid)

first is a number of options for my key light on my subject…

halogen, florescent and led lights in several powers and light temperatures… I try to find the right light to work with the available light… I use whatever lights are there for ambient, or back light or fill light then add my key light…

one job recently I used a daylight balanced compact florescent bulb (in a paper chinese lantern) as key, a large window as backlighting and the inside incandescent lights as ambient…

end result : by moving my lantern as close to the subject as possible, I got soft light, and bright enough to balance with the window light…. the ambient light inside the room was soft and warm…

excellent result using only one added light by me…

I use a Kodak greycard for manual color balance and exposure and this allows me to match as close as possible the shots from 2 camcorders and 2 d-slrs for multi cam edit with both stills and video in the final product..
