We will need a powerful torch since we are going to work in the dark. If the torch is adjustable, all the better; this way we can switch between more intense light and more diffuse light.
We will take a piece of translucent plastic, if possible it should be stiff so that we can hold it more easily, and we will colour small sections of the plastic with the coloured markers. Then, depending on the colour we want, we will put that part of the piece of plastic in front of the torch as if it were a filter and we will have our mini portable spotlight.
To fill the scene with this colour and not lose the other colours we will project a colour that complements the background. In my case, I used blue in the torch so I decided to go for a pink neon light I had at home. In this way, even if the blue predominated in the areas I wanted to focus on, I would not lose the other colours. A disco-type light would also do or a lamp with a coloured scarf on top, etc. It's all about trying things out.
In the creative process, the editing of the photo is very important (below you can see the before and after) since the equipment available to each person will give different colours. In my case, the blue I had on hand was quite purple, but I was aware of this and knew that I could change it in the editing to produce a more aqua blue, which was what I had in mind. The same happened with the pink, which was going to become a more reddish shade. As I said, it's all about trying things out, playing around and enjoying the process.
I hope you like it and use it! It's not Magic, It's Energy!
