I've been riding this gel wave recently and it's been amazing the feedback has been tremendous seems like you guys are really digging it. Well I'm happy because I really like it too. I still find it challenging to say the least but its well worth the effort. I think the hard thing is finding the right colors to put together every color doesn't work well with this kind of lighting.
I haven't experimented to much with color combinations yet maybe I'll get a model over here and just try all the colors we can think of, that would be a fun shoot for sure. But until that happens I'm digging this hollywood teal and orange classic it definitely the most popular color palette in film, and for good reason it works in most situations. And it's no different here Kristy looks great!
That's not all we did though we had to do some hard lighting looks this will always be a favorite look of mine its just so fun to shoot. Kristy busted out the fashion nova outfit for this. I think the outfit looks great also I finally get to show off my wood floor. You might recognize it for a few weeks ago if you follow my instagram stories. I think this was the first shoot you can actually see the floor, it looks even better than I'd hoped!
Of course we had to go in a little tight and show off Alayza's makeup. She did an amazing job like always but see for yourself Kristy looks great! Also Alayza and I both seen a noticeable improvement in Kristy's modeling she's gotten much more comfortable with her modeling and it really shows.
Kristy is doing a great job selling that dress and that eyeshadow. I think the reason I love this lighting is because it's not about the lighting. it's a blank canvas and its the models personality and talent that bring the images to life it's a total 180 from using gels where the lighting is the most dominant aspect of the shot. There's no right or wrong answer, to quote Jay-z "Art is super subjective" which do you prefer?
