In this third session we decided to color shift while maintaining a romantic color scheme. We utilize colors based around the range of magenta hues. Although not as intense as red, magenta allows for a similar romantic feel and magenta encompasses a regal nature. The team used shots with an extreme contrast. Our fog machine was turned on intermittently to add texture. Looks were more static and focused on hand positioning with facial expression as an after thought; this allowed for the theme and colors to speak to the message.
Similar to our previous shoot, there is a need to flag and block a certain amount of light from reaching the subject. This coupled with the beauty dish with a grid, we focused the beam of light to only hit certain segments of the model and isolate her from the rest of the scene. This created the vinette feel we were looking for. The only additional element was that of adding texture to the scene.
We used both strobe and constant led lighting for the magenta lifestyle photography, but the trick is positioning and powering the strobe in such a way that it does not overpower your constant lighting. Images from these sets are heavily based on texture. The reflection of fog, material of dress, and styling of hair builds the desired look. Although light is important, balancing the lighting, color, and the proper amount of shadow is crucial. This becomes even more important when the lighting you choose matches either wardrobe or model.
