2007 may 18, Zaventem (Belgium), photoshoot with model Irene Proshina (model release).

This is personal work. No goals,themes or expectations, just a fun shoot to try out some new ideas.

Lighting Info:

I just used only some minor photoshop corrections for this picture.

The model is lit with an SB-24 and a cardboard snoot (camera left). Triggered with pocketwizzards.

I noticed this small tunnel with it's greenish fluorecent lights. Usually we use coloured gels to balance the color of different light sources. But I often like to have a different light colour between foreground and background. You could use a green gel on the flash to balance the colour on the model and make the lights in the background appear neutral. Being someone who allways do the oposite of what a sain person would do, I decided to exagerate the green color of the fluorecents.

The opposite colour of green is red, so I taped a red gel on the flash that illuminates the model. The white balance was altered to make the skin of the model appear (almost) neutral. This creates a colour shift on the background lights and thus makes them more green and saturated.


For the people in the movieshot pool: I think this picture has a Matrix green feel to it :-)
