Sicario color changes (2 replies and 1 comment)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and shooting on 1917 has been nothing less than a smooth and wonderful process!
I have a quick question on Sicario. There are constant transitions between a warmer color palette and a cooler one typically around the police force. I'm wondering if you did anything to the white balance or grade between these two shots on the private jet and the SUV? I tried emulating the results just to learn from them and my shots in the car are coming out too warm without tweaking the grade.
Thanks so much!
I rarely change the white balance of the camera to create those warmer or cooler colors. I do this using a dimmer or filters on the lights. I do this as I am usually mixing sources and don't want a frame to be just one color all over, as it might be if you were just altering the white balance.
That makes sense!
Do you recall if these both were set at Daylight?
Thank you again for your help!
The first was a set lit using tungsten sources so the camera would have been set at 3500K whilst the second was a daylight shot and I would have had the camera set at 5500K.
