Priceless! bw!

I have been growing in my use of flash bounce technique, but one issue I have run across is the sense of it ongoingly messing the white balance (depending on the variation of bounce surface color), adding a light source with an odd color temperature to the mix. I've often been pleased with the lighting, only to opt for making them BW or sepia because of irreparable white balance mixtures.

Any thoughts?

gel the flash to match the lighting venue
most ballrooms are lit with tungsten so use an orange gel, that way all the lighting is the same white balance. light orange have several strengths of it on hand.

Thanks for your thoughts; I usually do use a CTO or CTO 1/2, but I guess I'm thinking more about the variation of color experienced from bouncing flash off of a darker wood surface, or a light green wall, or a mix of the two, etc.

If youre bouncing off wood, and the place is lit with tungsten, you might not need a gel at all. :D Its really an expiriment, I think. :D

Here is a good thread about it - http://neilvn.com …lash-off-colored-walls/p1 (external link)

^I've done that (bounce from wood, treat that as a gel) and have had fantastic results.
