Gold, Glitter And Confetti Explosions. Birthday Photoshoot With My Muah

When your favorite stylist / MUAH turns 30 and she asks if I want to make a photoshoot with her, I think the clear answer is HELL YEA!! So we started planning this bit flamboyant photoshoot with gold, glitter and confetti explosions. I wanted also to use some colored gel filters to bring some depth to the image. Laura came to the studio to decorate a part of our studio with all kind of gold stuff and when we were ready we started shooting.

You can see the light setup I used most of the time. Main flash was Elinchrom 44 with grid. I filled the shadows using blueish-green filter to fill the shadows with cooler tones shooting that to a white lastolite reflector, and then the separation flash with an orange filter using a silver reflective umbrella.
