Shooting with Artificial Lights

When shooting under artificial lights, flickering can occur because electric lights operate under AC currents that alternate at a given frequency. In order to stop this effect and record under stable artificial light it is crucial to adjust the shutter speed to match the AC current frequency (usually 50 or 60 Hz).

Artificial light also brings a green tint to the image which can be corrected by adjusting the white balance settings in the camera.
