I always wanted to try this technique but don't know how, or if, I would go about setting a 10 or 20D to achieve this effect.

Here's an example:


Thanks.

I don't believe this was done "in-camera".
My bet is either this shot was edited and the blue sky was put there (adding that light source as well) or (more likely) this was done with white balance.

One thing I notice is that there are no stars in the sky. None. I have a hard time believing that this could be taken at night, without serious modification, and not have at least a few stars visible.

Here's the link to the explanation. I have read about this technique using tungsten film in other magazies as well.

I would say that you can just set your WB to "tungsten" on your 20D, and you should be able to get the exact same affect as with tungsten balanced film:idea:

Here is a sunset photo that I took in Cozumel. I went through and tried all the different white balance settings on my Rebel to see which looked best. This is the incandesent light setting.

Sometime when you have a nice sunset, I suggest snapping a picture with each white balance setting to see how it affects the picture. It is quite amazing.

Here is the same sunset with the daylight white balance.
