One Flash, Two Colors

Pop Photo's Peter Kolonia brings back a classic Dean Collins trick this month, wherein he shows you how to get two colors out of a single background light.

I probably would have chosen to use a different set of colors than he did in his example shot - cool gel on the background portion and warm on the hair portion would be my choice. But the technique is pretty nifty.

If doing this with a speedlight, you'd need to make it into a quasi-bare-bulb light first. Use a Sto-Fen Omnibounce, or just a small Tupperware container.
