With the dearth of bugs at the weekend, I also decided to have a play around with flash colours. Quite simply I put coloured gels ( or more precisely, old Olympus Flash Coloured Filters) over the flash guns of my MT-24ex. I put a different colour on each of the flash lights and shot the moss you see naturally lit, in the first picture below, to give different colour effects. It’s the first time I’ve tried this and think the experiment went quite well, the moss being a good subject I feel to use this alien feel lighting on.
Red and Blue Filters
Blue and Red (I switch lamps) Filters.
Blue and Green
Green and Blue. Again just switched lamps.
Red and Orange Filters. Not too keen on this one personally.
And lastly Green and Orange.
