    Looking for suggestions for good mobile lighting solutions. My photos come out with this pink tinge using my current setup (architects lamp on dining room table). Any suggestions?

    do you shoot digital? as a temporary measure you could set a custom white balance to negate the pinkishness until you come up with some lighting solutions.

    Good idea. I saw something a while back called ‘snap lights’ or something like that but lost the link.

    I just hate that darkness comes so early these days and I get no natural light. 😥

    The lamp isn’t perchance, flourescent, is it?

    My architects lamp takes one of those tiny tubes. Pardon my ignorance but I forget what they’re called. Is that flourescent? Above is a regular light bulb…100 watt.

    Smith Victor sells a cheap kit with two hot lights for $115 or so. Also, don’t forget the Home Depot school of lighting. Cheap work lights on towers, fairly white, slightly tungsten on the white balance light. Take the wire mesh off the front. Can be had for $20-$40 depending on where you go. Just don’t burn your house down with them 😉

    Personally, I use an SB-600 and SB-800 Nikon, with reflectors, filters, etc. Not as strong a studio flash setup, but I can take it anywhere, and the remote command is wireless, so I can toss the SB-600 in odd places for interesting lighting effects. I’ve taped it to things before, or I just have someone hold it for me sometimes.

    Probably a halogen bulb. Buy a new bulb. Get a color balance one. You want a color temperature of 5200 to 5500?K and a CRI as close to 100 as possible.

    That must have been what I saw before I lost the link. Kept thinking snap lights for some reason. Thanks 🙂

    GE makes some incandescant full spectrum bulbs. I think they’re called “Reveal” or something like that. I’ve gotten good results w/o flash when the room is brightly lit by those lights.

    That’s funny, I was looking at those the other night at Target. May have to give them a shot, thanks!

    You can get surprisingly good results just by mounting your flash inside a flash umbrella. That’s cheap (only the cost of the umbrella + stand + a gizmo to wirelessly fire the flash) and works pretty well for a ghetto rig. 🙂

    Do you have/use photoshop? If so learn to use the curves dialog to fix color casts. Easy fix to a myriad of issues.
