Last winter, I shot a choir's Christmas concert in a church that had an uneven mixture of incandescent spots and CFLs. Of course some of the CFLs were old and needed replacing so they were even further off-the-mark than new ones might have been. Complicating it even more were tall windows on either side of the church that had pebbled glass on the lower part and pebbled yellow-orange glass on the upper part.

I could find every sort of light, from very blue to very yellow to very green-spike, directly and indirectly lighting the choir.

Since there was no budget to bring in a lighting truck, I eventually built an adjustment layer in After Effects for each camera angle. The adjustment layers had different areas of color to compensate for the different colors and unevenness in the lighting. I'm just glad I didn't have any moving camera shots!


The results were pretty good - not my greatest images, but worth every penney they paid for it.


Jim
