Does Arny Freytag use Rosco CTO gels? If so, he obviously has this set gelled, right?

http://www.lensdiaries.com/blog/wp-c...centlights.jpg

I can see on the model's facebook page that there's a beauty dish and a octadome (5' or 7'). Does Arny gel the beauty dish or octadome? Is the gel right at the face?

Someone argued that they put it on the face of the softbox/beauty dish.

Since I took that photo you posted, I can tell you, no, the face is not gelled, only the accent lights. Arny has guest instructed at my Las Vegas (Dec. 09'), Los Angeles (Feb. and July 10') and Phoenix (June 10') photography workshops and we've done several private instructions at Studio West this year where he demonstrates his lighting technique. All the behind scene shots I've posted in my Facebook prove that too.

Some of the photos may look off color and give that illusion because a lot of shots, I've just taken with my iPhone and obviously I'm not linked into the flash. We do adjust the white-balance in camera, and we normally tether the photographer's camera into a computer and the images are adjusted in Capture One software as they are shot. But the short answer, no. Yes, we do use gels, like "straw" and "CTO's" for the accents.

The beauty dish, octabox and ringflash is a set-up used for the face that he uses called "Over and Under" lighting. You can see the ringflash with a modified over/under lighting (used a softbox instead) here: http://www.lensdiaries.com/blog/phot...villa-hot-tub/ and the story that includes your photo here: which also discusses the accent lighting used. http://www.lensdiaries.com/blog/photo-tips/rim-lighting-in-photography/

I guess soon I'll do a blog post demonstrating how the over/under lighting is done and why it works based on the Angle of Incidence Equals the Angle of Reflection designed to smooth the model's skin and face in the camera, not photoshop.

I hope that helps and I'll put more on LensDiaries.com soon. rg sends!

Oh ok. Thanks. Where is this in your Facebook page? I see "Rolando Gomez Photography" but nothing there is behind the scenes.
