    Hi,

    i'm planning to shoot some portaits with this film lighting kit
    http://www.lowel.com/kits/DVcreator55.html

    i'll be shooting on a pentax film camera and was wondering what type of film would work best with these lights?


    thanks for you help

    Halogen lamps in general run hotter [by a few hundred degrees K] than ordinary tungsten bulbs. This will result in a slight shift toward the cool side. It may not even be noticeable if you are using color negative film.

    If precise color balance is your thing, it's easy to include a color chart in the frame, positioned so that it will be cropped out in the final print. Alternately, you can simply hold the chart where the sitter's face will be and shoot it full frame.

    Then adjust printing filtration to match the chart in a test print.

    I doubt if it will be necessary, though.
