  1. I usually throw in a “digital” tungsten filter on such situations to get stronger blues. How do you feel about it? thanks for the tips.

  2. I am shooting RAW files so I can always do white balance corrections later. I shoot mostly on daylight white balance because that is what I was used to with film and so if the colors “change,” they change in a way I am used to, having seen similar changes with film. But, that’s my preference, There is nothing absolute about my strategy.
