One of the things I really enjoy with photography is to experiment with lighting and I have been playing with colored gels and metallic body paint for a little while now.
In this particular setup I had a red gel on the left, a blue gel on the right and a yellow gel as a rear back highlight.
During the shoot, the yellow gel had fallen off without me knowing and I kept shooting and by mistake, I ended up with this wonderful gold highlight coming from behind her. This particular 'goof' turned out to have a very cool effect and something I will be experimenting with a bit more in my next Metallica shoot.
