Creative Portrait Lighting Using Colored Gels

Powerful Color – Creative Portrait Lighting Using Colored GelsLight and Color are two of the most effective tools a photographer can use to add subtle creative touches or create dramatic impactful statements in a photograph.

Effective use of Color can be the difference from an ok shot to an incredible one.

Using 3D light planning software, I will show you actual shot breakdowns of how I use Color and colored gels as an integral part of creating 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 creating Color with both strobes and constant light sources. I will take you through my process from start to finish.
