„To brighten up the white wall in the garage, we decided to hang a transparent garden film on the garage door track. This allowed us to do a lot subtle color reflections generate what ultimately leads to the colored illumination of the model fitted better and we didn't have a sterile background, explains Nagel..
To illuminate model Juliane Denzer with three colors, he has one from the back left Rollei Lumen Stick used, whose LEDs orange were set. Ours shone from the front left Lumen Ring RGB in cyan and another one from the front on the right Lumen Ring RGB in magenta. In this way, the photographer has the exciting double ring reflection create in the eyes of the model.
With this structure, Sebastian Nagel did not use a lumen ring, but two lumen sticks, whereby one of the two lit up in blue from the left and the other in red from the right. And here it was foil in the background appropriate.
With this set, Juliane was wrapped in the foil and this was also used as a background. Again, Nagel is involved two lumen sticks (Blue/Magenta and Blue/Red) worked.
Here Juliane is lying on the floor and is wrapped in foil. Here too they have him Lumen Sticks served well in magenta and blue. However, blue is aimed more at the foil to add some emphasis to the background. Also, Nagel explains, on sets 2-4 to brighten up the garage overall, he has that Soluna II-60, used. So to speak as passive light source.
As you can see: Even with somewhat fewer options, you can fantastic photos succeed. Get inspired by us!
Note: Please note that the Lumen Stick RGB shown in the photos is the previous version without an integrated and non-removable handle. The technical specifications of the new model with integrated handle are identical. You can use the new Lumen Stick RGB for a shoot in the same way as described and shown here.
