It was a busy weekend running an event on Friday evening and a full day event on Saturday. I'll be sharing some of the images from the weekend through out the day so keep monitoring your G+ stream for them.
First up a portrait shot at the "Technicolor Grey" event on Friday. The theme of the event was to use a monochrome (grey) background and colour it using gels. In this shot we used two background lights and two different coloured gets to create the effect. A bowens studio light with a simple reflector and a blue gel was used to colour the background blue. Then a second bowens head this time with a grid and a red gel was use to give a colour highlight/halo behind Sophie (the model).
The foreground lighting consisted of a bownes head with partially closed 60in brolly. This was positioned high in front of Sophie. Shadows were then filled in using a reflector on Sophie's lap.
(My thanks towho brought the 60in brolly to the event and showed how we could use it to light the foreground in combination with the background lighting effects that I was demonstrating)
