Behind The Lens

This photo was taken at Arizona Studios in Phoenix, AZ.
This was taken right after my shift working at the studio. It was one of those days where it was about 110 in the studio and having to set up lights for this shoot.
For this lighting i used 2 stripbox soft box with 2 neewer strobes. I had but an orange gel on one light and a yellow gel on the other and did a clam like lighting.
I used my Canon5dmklll with a Zeiss 35mm
I was at home watching the Wu tang series on hulu and then it just hit me, that i would love to do a shoot that has the Wu-Tang logo and have the warm colors for it. And of course it being wu-tang and them loving the old school kung fu movies, why not through in a samurai sword in the mix and vuala, there you go
I did do some post work on this image. I have done some gel lighting in my past and know that the saturation of the gels dont give off that much color and so i had to bump up the saturation along with adjusting the levels of the image. There was some photoshop that had to be done and to try and clean up the floor. and lastly i had to sharpen the image a little more.
In my camera bag
I usually carry a 35mm and 50mm prime lens with my bag. I also have an adjustable ND filter with other filters from Prism FX.
My advice to achieve this look or to even work with color gels, is to remember that it will be tricky. Some times the colors are not going to pop like you want them to but then again you have to tweek the setting and power of the light source. The higher the power the less saturation and the lower the power the more saturation but going to be an under exposed image. remember the triangle of exposure and really focus on your shutter, cause that will play a big role.
