Wouldn't it be nice if it were just a gain adjustment . . .    Always a little
bit of remixing too.  But, while I like exploring new looks, I find the use of
filters slightly aggrevating because their effect is not predictable.  I have
heard others speak glowingly of filter sets, and I've wondered if I'm using a
substandard set - perhaps other suppliers have developed sets that work
particulary well with the various light sources that are specific to each

But, yes I start with a basic mix as a reference point before I add a filter.
