Luscious Color, Dynamic Portraits with Rosco Laboratories’ Gel Kits

One look at Lindsay Adler’s website should convince you she ranks among the top fashion photographers in the world, with a stunning, bold style and sometimes brain-melting creativity.

To our great fortune, she also spends some of her time teaching the craft of photography, leading workshops around the world for creativeLIVE, KelbyOne, and others, as well as publishing books – some with titles that might make you chuckle and say, “Yep. Been there.”

She recently shared a behind the scenes video showing how she created these fashion portraits for Elle Indonesia. The magic in these images came from – besides Lindsay’s brain – Rosco gel kits. Lindsay had the idea to hold various gels at different angles in order to create splashes of color over the image, as a graphic designer might do. The result is gorgeous and arresting, as the layers of colors wrap across the model’s face. If it’s winter where you are, as it is for us, you’ll probably appreciate these vivid images all the more.

Watch Rick Friedman Explain His Portrait Workflow at the B&H Event Space

If you follow his blog, you already know that our friend Rick Friedman held a workshop at the B&H Event Space. He visited to talk about how he approaches his portrait work, particularly when you need to make a great image of a VIP in very little time. (VIPs are not known for standing still for more than a few minutes…)

At any rate, Rick’s been doing this since the Reagan years, so he’s probably got the hang of it by now. Have a look at the video, which has just been posted by B&H, and see if you can pick up a few pro tips! Or, if you prefer to read his blog post, you can do that, instead.
