I will be shooting an indoor event this weekend. I have viewed the location online. There seems to be a lot of fluorescent lights. I would not be surpirsed if they were the old type with a green tint. I could use flash and was wondering should I gel my flash w the green gell that comes w my flash, use another gel, don't worry about it? Will bouncing off a white cieling matter? I am not confident of my ability to see the color of light coming off the flourescent light, will I be able to determine this on my LCD on review. I plan on using a WB preset w a gray card.
Thanks in advance for any help.
