White Balance Corrective Gels
Rajo: At last, I am ready to bring balance to the white. After a long journey through the wind and cold and a hair cut, I have finally arrived back into my humble studio. The cryptic words of the black body radiators still ringing my ears and they drive my hands with purpose. I took a secret from the tricks to God’s cave only by combining the blue light of the sun with the orange glow of the tungsten bulb will I truly achieve color balance. And only then will I be able to balance the white. Now, I begin my video blog about the thunder cats.
Gordicus: Stop! You know not what you do, do not hit record!
Rajo: Fat demon dog the net cries out to hear my thunder cat opinions, I have traveled far and you will not stop me.
Gordicus: Fool, this is not about the thunder cats, you know the blue light the sun balance and the red light of the tungsten bulb but you cannot mix them.
Rajo: I cannot? Why not?
Gordicus: Because it looks freaking terrible
Rajo: Curse this stupid earth.
Gordicus: Look, its fine, you need to relax. If you just set your camera to sunlight.
Rajo: Wait. Set my camera, sunlight white balance, what?
Gordicus: Okay. Look, we’ll get to that in the next episode. Okay. Yes, Eyes on me please. Okay. If you set sunlight white balance to white then your tungsten light will look red and it will look unnatural and vice versa
Rajo: So, how do I shoot when I have both sunlight and tungsten?
Gordicus: With the power of gel.
Gordicus: Yes. A thin layer of plastic, you can put in front of light or windows to transmute color temperature.
Rajo: Infernal dog, you will not bewitch me with this sorcery,
Gordicus No, seriously it’s like s couple of box of sheet. The once you need our CTO and CTB. Which stand for color temperature orange and color temperature blue; CTB is blue when if put in front of tungsten lights it will turn there orange glow and glow into the blue glow with the sun ball. If you pout CTO on your window, it would change the sun balls. Now, go the orange glow of tungsten, neither sources will not be mix. It will be all types of colors but are all sun color.
Rajo: Oh that’s great, then what?
Gordicus: Then you must go to the camera demon, speak with him and tell them of your plan.
