Coloured Light Mixing: Studio D Gets Creative Behind the Scenes

Studio D is a production house brimming with talented, creative minds. When we work with our clients, we know it’s not the time to take risks. We need our decisions to be a sure thing. It’s an important part of our creative development to make time to play around and learn on our own so we can always bring fresh ideas to our clients. This session was no different. For this photo and video piece, our concept revolved around the use of coloured light mixing across the human face.

A pleasing blend of colour and light was essential in creating these dynamic portraits. We began with two colours, magenta and blue, and moved through a series of portraits with our model, Trinity.

The model’s makeup and hair were integral in the overall feel of the final images. For example, we incorporated motion by fanning Trinity’s long hair. Professional makeup artist Holly Decker created a dewy, highlighted look that emphasized the bow of Trinity’s lip, and tied it all together with a juicy, kissable pout. The makeup worked seamlessly with the tones and cross lighting.

For the next phase, we moved from two colours to three with a soft, cool cyan to contrast two harsh light sources, with yellow on the left and magenta on the right.

When working creatively like this, it’s always such a delight when everything clicks into place. We are so pleased with how everything came together to create the final result.

Thank you to Trinity from Edge Agency and Holly Decker for joining us in the studio.
