How to create blue hour light

Blue hour is that cold and blue light that appears before sunrise in the morning and after sunset in the evening. With flash, you can re-create this look no matter what time of day it is. Here are the tips for how to create the look yourself.

Step 1: Change the Kelvin setting (color temperature) to below 4000 in your camera to get a cooler background and to match the feeling of blue hour

Step 2: Position your flash in front of the models to light them up. Add a Profoto Clic Gel CTO on your Profoto A1X to get a neutral color in the model’s face.

Tip
Attach an umbrella to the A1X if you want the light on the models to be softer.
