TV Studio Lights
Was wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to shoot still images in a TV News Studio? I will be doing it this weekend and wondering what white balance would work out the best. I won't have time to do any tests before hand.....

Sorry to have post this in two places. Not sure where it really belongs if a Moderator wants to delete one of the threads please do......

I'd set a custom white balance using a photographic white or gray card to get it close.

Then, shoot raw+jpeg for more flexibility in post processing in case you get it wrong (or the lights are cycling causing an issue; or they have different types of lighting with more than one color temperature).
