    Default Bad English

    Hi,

    As seen the stage/concert photography article in the current issue of Asian Photography (ok, may not be word for word but the gist is there) :-

    "Avoid green/blue lighting, they make your subject go contrast, false and have a colour cast"

    I still wonder what is the meaning of "go contrast".

    They look okay to me, definitely did not "go contrast"

    Blue colour I can understand, but green? Our eyes (and most camera sensors that use the Bayer R-G-B-G mosaic design) are more sensitive to green compared to other colours--so green lighting gives the picture the luminance value.

    And so red doesn't give a colour cast? Maybe it affects skin colour less...

    May be wrong, but this is my logic...

    i think CK's point is on the English, not the effect of diff colour casts... ??

    This cracks me up...

    Avoid green... you'd have a green cast.
    Avoid blue.... you'd have a blue cast.

    Use orange... you wouldn't have an orange cast.

    ... Duh.

    On the next CS photoshoot, shall we go... ahem... contrast?

    May 2004 issue. Saw the new jargon as well. (Kinda wasted 6 bucks for the mag)

    Then there's a photo contest too, it says "Rush in your entries before March 2004" !

    Actually, they recommended shooting under red/yellow as these are more "natural" or something like that. Another tip (paraphrased) goes something like "find the light that you like and follow that. When you subject comes into the light, this is the moment to shoot. Don't attempt to track the subject around". ????

    Sure, if someone can tell us what it means in the first place. Or is that a place?
