Warming strobe filters
Posted 14 June 2012 - 11:31 AM
My strobes are daylight (5600K) and it would be easy to add a warming filter under the diffuser.

My method. Camera set to a tungsten WB, and a full CTO on the flashes.
Background water becomes blue and anything exposed by the flash is colour corrected.
An example with very little post production colour correction.

That is really a lovely pic near 1000 islands.

In my opinion, go with the cool strobes and get that nice emerald green. Have a look at the winning pic on the weekly competition, great example of how green water images can be absolutely stunning!
Most importantly have fun with it- Morten.

I think it all depends on which type of image you want to create.
+1on this. The use of filters (or lack there of) should be used to align yourvisual concept of what you want to capture. There is no right or wrong withrespect to using them or not. I don't always do what I describe above, thoughwhen it comes to capturing people in water generally that is my approach.
