Mood Boards and Pinterest (Colourful)
I was really looking forward to this shoot and I knew straight away what images and lighting I wanted to create and that was gel lighting I have been waiting for a chance to uses gels and experiment with the different colours and different exposure of lighting to find out which looks best with what. However to start my research I did not want to be closed minded and only look at gel lighting so I looked at other ideas like having a bright background, clothes and makeup, by doing this it helped confirm gel lighting as the best route for me to take as I can take ideas from these images and hopefully bring them into the images I want to take.
After doing the research I still wanted to do gel lighting so I began the research just into gels and what different colour gels go best with each other etc. Some of the gels colours I think work well together are blue and red, blue and pink, green and yellow. My main aim for this part of the project was to experiment as much as I could with the colour gels I had. One thing I did have to remind myself of is that this project is fashion so the main focus needs to be on the clothes and not just the gels so I need to make sure I found the right balance between the two.
