From my basic lighting class at SAIT this evening. The lovely Breanna graced us once again as a subject and today's topic was using gel's to colour the background. I gave my lecture and explained what we are doing and how it works then brought Breanna up for a couple of test shots before letting the students have the opportunity to photograph her. Now Breanna has been coming to my classes for some 8 years now as a subject and we work pretty intuitively together and I have plenty of wonderful images of her created over this time period as it is hard to take a bad photograph of her.
Any way I did my shots, showed the students and left it at that. When I got home and downloaded them I was happy with the look of this one and decided that it would be the image of the day.
