My SPRING

I love being inspired by other photographers. I screen shot a portrait I saw on Lindsay Alder's website as while ago. She has many creative ideas to inspire others . She used two different color gels as a rim light on each side of the face and great floral around her neck. I was very excited to try it out. I had my makeup colors planned ..Blue,purple and yellow..Quiet a mix hey! As I started planning my floral I was getting worried about having harsh shadows from the speed lights. Okay I'll start with natural light then and see how it goes..but the whole point why I wanted to do this shoot was for the gels! Two minded on shoot. I brought a red gel and a purple gel.Just cheap craft ones. Then I noticed all my colors I picked to match with my floral changed dramatically when I had the colored gels on my speed lights...Bummer!! My "spring" look was gone! . So I went with natural light...not for long cos I still wanted that effect..Threw the red gel out and used the purple because it wasn't over powering. Results!!!!????? I don't know which is my favorite!!! You pick.....
