Deconstructed // Gels and Night Lights with the Profoto A1X
On a recent trip to New Orleans we rented this bad ass Airbnb in the warehouse district, the one thing you will see are the killer windows very much part of those old warehouse buildings.
So, of course, I wanted to make a cool image here.
My thought was to do something dark and moody taking the night street lights and tones into play. I was envisioning this night shot with warm and cool tones. In addition, I needed shadows on the wall to mirror what would happen if light was coming from the outside.
Camera: Canon EOS R5 // Lens: Canon RF 50mm 1.2 // Lighting: Profoto A1x // Modifiers: MagMod MagGrip and Gel Kit w a MagGrid to control light spill.
Camera settings were 1/100th sec f1.2 ISO 100
After a few test frames I got dialed in and we were off to the races.
I hope you enjoy the image and challenge yourself to experiment and play with light like I did there.
