Shooting RAW in florecent lighting and using flash for fill will not work out perfectly without using a green gel.

It won't work out perfectly with a green gel either. :lol:

But with some combination of green and amber, it will work better.

There is tremendous variety among fluorescent lighting, but here's what I came up with:

Do you have a link?

Put it up on my fb, but here's an imgur link.

Not really anything too special about it, but helped me understand other uses for using gels.

Okay...similar to how I tried lighting my Danbo (external link) shots I just did. I had a red gel on my environment light, but the subject was hit by another flash that give it the correct white balance (colour cast).


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!
