    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I have an idea for a shot (The shot is for a college scholarship program) but I don't know how to do it correctly.

    I own a D70 (I'm doing this digitally) and whenever I use the indoor white balance and shoot fire, it looks white. It works fine on natural light so I don't have a problem.

    But, the shot I'm doing involves lighting a model (6 year old boy) holding something on fire, and I can't use natural light balance with my modeling lights.

    So, how would I fix this? I can't use film, because I don't have access to a color darkroom and if you use film you have to process the film yourself. I would use my strobes, but the D70 has no PC flash sync.

    Help? Please?

    You could try putting colour correction gels over the lights to get their Mired value neare the candle. That should sort it.
