    so i tried some long exposures, and only used street lighting. they look terrible i cant correct it out. :wtc:

    the obvious solution is to do this with black and white, but how do i shoot colour?


    example it sucks, 30 second exposure, Ektachrome 200

    I assume you're trying to correct it in camera as apposed to scanning it and correct it in post? You'd have to use a filter to cancel out the light temp from the lamp.

    It sucks because youre using tungsten light and the film isnt balanced for it. You need to get a coolish colored filter to try and correct for it.


    Or you could join the rest of the world, shoot digital, and correct your white balance in post.

    all right fine ill switch to black and white for night shots, what filter? pick from what i own, orange, yellow or green, a blue tiffen filter will cost me $5

    wheres the fun in digital? everything seems to hold your hand and do all the work for you

    Youd still have to know what to do with digital in that shot.

    If you want to take it in B/W, the color balance doesnt matter. Adding filters with B/W is only to bring out certain aspects of a picture. Red filters are often used for B/W landscapes because they block blue light and will make the sky appear darker (since it is blue...).

    I disagree. I find it far easier to express myself with digital photography than film.

    It completely depends on what color light is dominant and what effect youre looking for. If you want me to hold your hand, you should just go digital :mamoru:
