Power Color: Creative Portrait Lighting with Gels

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

Using 3D light planning software (set.a.light 3D) Joe will show you actual shot breakdowns of how he uses color and colored gels as an integral part of creating Fashion and Beauty portraits.

He will cover color theory and emotion and give you some great resources to help you become confident with color selection. He will look at options for creating color with both strobes and constant light sources and will take you through his 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!
