1: Grid full CTB; 2: Full CTO; 3: Stripbox purple The second test with Morgane helped me more easily understand color correction using the CTO and CTB gels. The CTB filter was placed on a reflector dish with a grid for a very focused light. The CTO was oriented towards a white reflector for a soft and diffused light so the skin could have an orange undertone. And finally, the purple filter was placed in a 135×30 Phottix Stripbox for a touch of color and a cold mood.
1: Stripbox Grid Cyan; 2: Softbox 1/2 CTO I really love this color, it gives a dark and cold mood that is really nice . The mix with the CTO is perfect to me. For this image I installed a Stripbox at 45° with the cyan, and a square softbox with a 1/2 CTO filter.
To light a foreground portrait subject against a setting sun, put a hot shoe flash inside a 36-inch umbrella-style softbox (A), and warmed up its output with a 1/4 Rosco CTO warming gel. assistant suspended the Softbox above the subject using a monopod (B) as a boom. posed the child to block the setting sun. Canon EOS 5D (C) and 17–40mm f/4L EF zoom at its 35mm setting. fired the flash with PocketWizard Plus II, for an overall exposure of 1/180 sec at f/13, ISO 100.
