daylight vs. tungsten

Hello there,

I'm just about to get a diva 200 set and I had one question about buying the daylight or tungsten bulbs...

If one is shooting a guy in front of a window or such, would they usually use daylight bulbs on the subject, or tungsten? I would think T because you are indoors, but I'm not sure, may D to match the outside?

I will probably get both sets eventually, but for now...

Thanks very much!

Usually you try to match the color temp of the differents light sources. So you may want to use the daylight corrected lights indoor when you have some light comming from the window. It's not a rule, through... you may want to have differents color temp some times.

You can also buy the tungsten and put gels on it to correct them to daylight color temp.
