    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.
