Izzi Blu – A Study in Color Shifts

1. Using the camera′s color temperature for tungsten, the ambient daylight becomes blue in hue. This effect can be achieved with an on-camera flash by placing a tungsten gel on the flash head and changing your camera′s color temperature to tungsten or 3200 Kelvin.

2. Using a light balanced to tungsten gives the face a more natural color, though in this case I wanted the face to be warm and used a warmer gel to convert my key light.

3. The warmth of her face and the coolness of the environment helps to give the subject greater impact within the environment.

4. We also added a blue hair extension in her hair for style, and used neutral but warm colors in her outfit.
