Ryan Sadowitz

I photographed my friend for his modeling portfolio this past weekend.  We made a lot of different images but I wanted do something that was really crazy.  This was my second time using gels in the studio and I really wanted to make it strange but also using the colors to shape his face.  

I used two red gels on two Profoto zoom reflectors at the 70 degree notch in back of him pointed slightly up at him and one Profoto zoom reflector at a high 45 in front of him attached with a 5 degree spot and a blue gel.  I made sure not to have the gel too high where the light would then be casting a shadow on his eyes from his eyebrows.  

This image was made using a 5dmkii and a 100mm 2.8 Macro

I also attached two more images we took after the studio session.
