    Im currently working on some shots that are supposed to take place in the middle of the night, but they are shot basically in the middle of the day. So im wondering what are your opinions as to how i should turn this shot into night? Im currently thinking of darkening the shot abit and then turning the whole thing blue, what do you think of that? anyone has a better idea?

    Hmm..lower your exposure (brightness and contrast works too if it has already been shot), desaturate the scene, and add a faint blue tint.

    There is a really good feature article over at DV.com.

    You have to register(free) to see it but there is so much that that site has to offer you may wan to register anyway just to read the stuff on it.

    The article is called "Lighting the Darkness" and is under the Features section. here is the url.
