Gel for effect

June 4, 2010

(I shot this with model Julie and collaborated with Nicole, the makeup artist.)

Sometimes, you will want to use gels not to just match the ambient for consistency sake, but to actually create a color  effect for your picture.  The above picture used a red gel to light the wall and floor and accentuates the color of that red chair.  I used CTO gel on the models hair and face and the fill light is just a non gelled light through a bounce umbrella.
