I'm not trying to correct the colors. I want to try an experiment on the off chance that it'll give me better B&W conversions. I actually don't expect it to work, that's why I want to find some cheap filters to play with. There's a lot to be said for listening to people who know more than you do, but to really learn something, I've found that nothing beats going out and failing miserably on my own.

No spot at this venue. This angle from behind the band shows the lights:
There's a green light coming in from the side, on the right side of this photo.

Occasionally this will lead to a nice effect, but usually just needs to be converted to B&W. Also, if I expose to not blow out the red channel, the blue and green channels end up about three stops under exposed, leaving me with 75% of my sensor sites way under.
