    Hello,

    Have a few rolls of Kodak 64t and 320t stashed in freezer that I might use for portaits in 'daylight' rather than under tungsten light so I can get the 'blue' effect. Question is, how 'blue' is this likely to be? I realise this will vary to some extent with strength of sunlight etc - has anyone got any samples they could post so I can get an idea of the range of 'blueness'?

    Thanks for your help,
    Gavin

    Look through an 81 camera filter or a sheet of CTB. That's about what you get. It's a quite large difference.

    In terms of color printing, maybe 25CC, I'd estimate?

    it is about 30cc blue and 15cc green or 15cc cyan and 15cc blue. At least that can be used as a starting point.

    If you haven't already done so, have a look at Baxter Bradford's shot of Newlyn Harbour in the Critique Gallery - probably page 2 or 3 by now. It was Fuji RTP64 + 85C filter but it should give you a good idea.
