MY light casts a shadow...I need to tint this shadow slightly blue...is it possible?

I have some footage where I tracked a person standing on the pavement. I have him casting a shadow to match the shadows in the scene..and I got it to look just right, but it needs a slight blue tint..I tried changing the color of the light and the color of the shadow catching layer...neither did the trick...Im going with not possible unless anyone has an idea?

How are you making the new shadow?

I tracked a green screen talent on to the footage with a 3d white shadow layer solid

You might think about applying the fill effect to that green screen, then playing with color & layer opacity to get a match.

I've never had to use a shadow layer, so I don't know if there's a property in it someplace for color.

I would think adding a blue ambient light should do it.
