Creative Portraits With Colored Gels

Light and color are two of the most effective tools a photographer has to add subtle creative touches or create dramatic impactful statements in a photograph. Effective use of color can be the difference between an ok shot to an incredible one.

In this interactive online photography presentation, using 3D light planning software (set.a.light 3D), I will show you actual shot breakdowns of how I use color and colored gels to create my Fashion and Beauty portraits.

We will look at color theory and emotion, and I will give you some great resources to help you become confident with color selection. We will look at your options for color creation with strobes and constant light sources. I will take you through my process from start to finish.

What you will learn:

  • Why does color matter?
  • How to plan the right colors.
  • How to read a color wheel.
  • Types of gels.
  • How to make DIY gels.
  • The easiest way to start using gel.
  • … and much more!

Who should attend this LIVE presentation?

If you want to make your images stand out, this presentation is for you. If you struggle with knowing which colored gels to use and where to place them, your work will significantly benefit from the techniques I will teach you in this presentation.

How can I help you?

There will be a live Q&A session after the presentation.

Come prepared with questions.
