tungsten or flash

  1. Hi,


    I'm shooting a still life using 2 small torch globes and was after advice about what would be the best lighting (and film) to use, tungsten or flash?? the globes will be placed inside a baby dolls head for more illuminance. The colour balance would obviously be upset, but im not sure which way......i'm shooting 4x5 (colour amd B&W) and obviously haven't chosen film yet !!

  2. I'd use flash, setting the aperture to underexpose a third or a half
    stop and using a shutter speed that would allow the torch globes
    to be seen well. Then I'd try some other exposure combinations
    and pick the one I liked best. If you use studio strobes, shut off
    the modeling lights before you open the shutter.
