How to make flourescent light more palatable?
Dear No Film School Community,
I'm planning a very diy shoot in the next couple of weeks set in an office building with typical ugly, overhead flourescents. I don't have any professional lights, I just have a few walmart lamps and a big light reflector. How can I use these items to help make the lighting more cinematic and interesting? I'm planning to do a grayish/greenish color grade (I don't know the technical term) which should offset some of the ugliness, but is there anything I should know or any techniques I should use to increase the aesthetic value and cinematic-ness?
