Using Color Gels

Boredom with my usual set up has led me to explore new lighting options. I do not have my own dedicated studio space at this time and am usually working with one or two lights and little diffusion options. I have a “bare bones” operation in my garage right now. It is by no means glamorous but I’m glad I have some space to practice photography.

In lieu of purchasing more lighting I recently snagged some lighting gels from LEE Filters and have been playing around with them a little. Though I only have two lights and little experience with gels I’m still pretty happy with the results. You can expect more color gel shoots in the future, and maybe next time I’ll be more subtle with the color. ūüėČ

 

The last three are my favorite, its interesting to see the exposure and color difference when a model is jumping all around.

Enjoy the low-res silly goodness!:

TILT NW assignment

Most Portland foodies already know of the amazing force that is TILT. The Portland Mercury recently sent me out to photograph some favorites from their newer NW location at 1355 NW Everett Street.¬†Tilt is known for having quality colossal burgers and delicious pies at an affordable price, the NW location even has a full bar! (I hear their bartenders aren’t too shabby either). I was lucky enough to come in early on a Saturday morning to shoot the images before it got crowded. I snagged a table in a corner of windows for nice light and began to drool as the food came out.

Here is Tilt’s website with their locations and menu:¬†http://tiltitup.com/

This is a link to the Food Review that the Mercury published: http://www.portlandmercury.com/portland/adding-pearls-to-a-blue-collar/Content?oid=12111965

Enjoy!
