I haven’t really used coloured gels before and there’s definitely an art to it. Decisions about which colour should predominate, where they should hit the subject, which complementary colours to use and how to subtly blend them – need some thought. I have some work to do to improve. Funnily enough, just after this shoot, I watched an 80’s based film, Atomic Blonde, that offered the viewer generous helpings of artfully balanced red/blue scenes. I can’t say I enjoyed the film, but it did inspire me and I shall attempt this approach again!
