Lighting is one of the most crucial elements on any film or video production set. You need to be able to color balance lighting on location or on set, when using your light kit or other available lighting, while still setting the mood you have in mind or depicting a specific time of day. The best way to do all of this is with color gels or filters. Digital Juice can help you solve most on-location mixed lighting problems with the newest addition to the DJ Gear Lighting Control product line - the Digital Juice Color Correction Gel Kit. This versatile kit comes with a full set of 15 high-temperature gel sheets, designed to color correct the majority of lighting situations you may encounter.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are some other uses for Color Correction gel filters beyond just balancing light sources?

Besides matching mixed light sources, gels can also be used to make a scene appear more natural by simulating the mix of color temperatures that occur naturally. Color gels can also be used to tint lights for artistic effect or to get a specific special effects look. Plusgreen filters can be used to counteract the pink-shift effect of ultraviolet tinted windows and to boost the richness of the green in background plant life.

  • On set, CTB filters are designed to raise the color temperature (measured in degrees Kelvin) of a warmer light source such as a tungsten light, to match the color temperature of a daylight source such as a strobe, HMI lamp or natural light from a window.

    Full CTB will typically convert a 3200 K light source to 5500 K, or normal daylight. Because incandescent lamps vary in color temperature and with the operating voltage, graduated steps of CTB filters help you achieve the proper color balance in every situation.

    Alternatively, CTO filters can be used on windows to convert cooler daylight to the look of incandescent light. 3/4 CTO will typically convert sunlight at 5400 K to 3200 K typical tungsten. Because sunlight varies in color temperature by region and during the day from sunrise to sunset, graduated steps of CTO are used to achieve the proper color balance and quality.

  • In the case where your shooting location has lighting from ceiling mounted fluorescents, you can balance your additional warmer lights using CTB filters -- as well as use a Minusgreen filter on the fluorescent light fixture to eliminate its peak green output.
