To warm or not to warm, that is the question.

I'm just curious what everyone else does on this issue. I'm shooting some bikini on the beach tomorrow and am thinking about using a warming filter. When you guys shoot RAW, do you just warm it up in PS, or are there advatanges to using a warming filter when shooting digitally? What effect will this have on the blues in the ocean? Should they be combined. These may all sound like stupid questions. This will be my first time using a warming filter, so I'd kinda like to know a little something.

Do you mean filter or warm cards?

Mike,

I shoot RAW with my Nikons... it's quite easy to specify the color temperature that I want in Nikon's Capture software, see the effect, change if desired, do a batch process on a group of images, then save those images to be opened in PS.

The very nice thing about it is that I can specify the temp, itself, in degrees Kelvin instead of just chosing either Daylight>Cloudy (6000K) or Daylight>Shade (8000K).. I tend to like to split the difference at 7000K, but can change it to whatever with the flick of a slider.

If Raw, no filter needed.

If you are shooting RAW, then you don't need a filter. All of the color info is going to be there and in the RAW converter you can add any color balance you want. I use a Canon 10D and usually set my white balance at 5600. But that is only affecting the imbedded jpeg in the RAW file. The RAW files color balance is always determined at the time you convert.



Shot is at 5600 K of model Kristen.

Cheers,
Roger

Wayne and Roger,

That's pretty much what I thought. The catch is that due to media size, I may not be able to shoot RAW. I have a 512 and 1 GB card, which will allow me to shoot about 200 images before they have to be cleaned off. I have a 10D. If that's the case I may need to shoot in fine jpg, in which case if I want the desired warming effect, I need to shoot using a filter.

Oh well, I'll try my best either way. I'll be posting results here soon. Thanks for your advice.

Mike

Adding a warming filter to a digital camera is very inneffective, especially if you're using auto white balance, because the camera will auto correct for the warming filter. If you're shooting in high JPEG, to get a warm look, try setting your white balance to shady or cloudy and set the white balance compensation to -2 or -3. This will warm up your shots.

Hi Allen,

Your response prompts a question that has been running thru my mind lately. Being a fairly new digital shooter, I was going thru my manual (Fuji S2) reading about white balance and thought, jeez, if I want to warm something up, I could probably find some color of blue paper that I could use as a white balance, and bingo....there would be the warmness. Are there cards made for this purpose by someone? If so, who?

Thanks for your time and in advance for your input,

Mitch Merritt
