Re: filmscanners: artificial light


Tungsten light is always "warmer" by several Kelvins than natural light, as 
you know. If you can't buy film rated for tungsten light (and I'm not sure 
you can), you can use a light blue filter, which unfortunately reduces the 
incident light you're working with (I don't know the filter 
numbers--photographers and photo shops will be better help here).

Otherwise, if you can set the color curves in your scan-driver, that may be 
your best way of proceding (I'm taking it that your scanner is seeing yellow 
in the prints that you're not seeing when you look at them ? ).

Reducing the yellow intensity (or the yellow saturation, as it sounds like 
might be the problem) in Photoshop is another option.

Best regards--LRA
