Colored Gels and Glamour

I have been experimenting a bit lately with gels with my lighting and this has been the first time that I combined the technique with glamour.

I think I might have to keep on playing with the gels as I digging the results.

Lighting in this image consisted of 3x 600w Godox QT-600 with a red, green and blue gel.

Front Bokeh effect plus MagMod Magbeam kit

I have until now predominantly shot landscape and automotive work most of my 6 years shooting. However, if I'm ever to try and make a go of this income thing from it, I've realised here in Sydney I need to add more than that to my bag of tricks.

Portrait Lighting With A 2m Parabolic Umbrella

I'll just keep posting till others start to join in! LOL

I had been shooting portraits for years and I used to use a beauty dish to the right, a soft box to the left and a hair light behind to the right, up high and angled down.

I started playing with a different setup recently and started to use a 2m parabolic umbrella on a boom...

CC Please- Water

Finally tried out some water shots like below. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks! And the fish was just something I wanted to do so I posted it as well.

(not sure if there's much to these photos to you guys but I thought they turned out pretty cool)

Studio Recreation Shoot...

Got to take part in a recreation photoshoot recently. We were recreating shots from a NY Times Magazine article featuring a famous actress... We were lucky to have a photographer with us who was at the actual shoot and was able to give us great insight in the behind the scenes activities and set-ups.

Feel free to comment and critique...

Mon Aimi

These are shots from a recent TF shoot with a model. I never do TF work and rarely work with models but I am trying to broaden my skillset.
CC is welcome.

Question

Hello, I´m working in my next shoot and I want to try something like this picture but I'm not sure in how work the light, if any of you could help me, that will be great.

Bringing Attention to Anxiety

Hi everyone, I am new to this group so I wanted to share a recent image I worked on. I am a college student currently working on building an editorial/commercial portfolio. This is one of my ideas of bringing more attention to various psychological and psychical problems such as PTSD, anxiety, and suicide. This is my first shoot for the series...

Wall Art

After I shot this, the model said "it looks like I'm on a wall". So we made it happen. What do you think?

Fire Man

Playing around with Kerosene, Foil paper and a match can be Dangerous. But this is what i came out with.
A bit of masking was needed to finish up.

Monika The Bunny

I had seen an image right here on Fstoppers a few weeks back and the model was wearing a really cool pair of white bunny ears in an outdoor shoot and I really liked the idea so I hit the keyboards and located the bunny ears but thought I would get the black ones as well as the white.

Shot with a strip box to the right and a foam core...

Where The Demons Lurk

This was a very different type of shoot for me as the poses were very fluid and dynamic.

Lighting for this was a single 2m octagonal softbox on a boom angled directly down

Portrait Lighting Inspired by Old Hollywood

Hi, everyone! I'm new to Fstoppers and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm primarily a boudoir photographer, but I love to play and experiment with lighting for personal projects, as well. :)

For this portrait, I wanted to try my hand at some Old Hollywood-style lighting. I don't remember the exact settings on my strobes (sorry!), but I...
