Hi,

Due to the lighting & camera that I am using, I end up with a very pink / purple looking face.

Anybody know which grade filters and in which order are best to cure this?

Sounds like you need to set the white balance on your camera, is this a possibility, or have you already filmed stuff and can't re-shoot?

Hi Tarn,

Thanks for your help - My camera only has very basic settings:

Auto
Sunny
Cloudy
Florescent
Tungsten

And something called EV which goes from -2 to +2

I have solved the problem.

By simply using daylight filters infront of the lights I have got rid of the pink faces.

Although the lights are just plain worklights, by using wire coat hangers and tape I have managed to mount the plastic filter sheets to produce pretty good daylight lights.

Spoke too soon - Things got better, but not great so I have changed my camera - Hopefully now I should get some decent results!
