Studio portrait photography with color gels

The idea of photoshoot with color gels was hanging in the air in our studio for a quite some time, and now Kevi Redding, beautiful young singer we were working before, asked us to do a portrait for her using colored lighting. After Kevi’s photo-shoot was done I wanted to try this lighting for myself:-)

The setup of this photo-session, some tips and video you can find on our photographer’s blog, supported by Alex Koloskov. On this post I’ll show you only the images.
