How to Make Creative Portraits With Colored Gels

Online Photography Presentation

Light and Color are two of the most effective tools that a photographer has to add subtle creative touches or to create dramatic impactful statements in a portrait.

In this online photography presentation, I will show you how I use color and colored gels as an integral part of creating my Fashion and Beauty portraits.

I will show you “HOW” I do it and more importantly give you a detailed understanding of the “WHY” behind my choices and how each of them impacts his portraits.
