Love the color. What gels did you use on your strobes?

I didn't use gel's, I just shifted the WB a little towards the warm side in post :)

Additional Notes

"DIYPhotography"

A photo from my local Foundry.

The lighting on this shot was tricky.. There wasn't much time (its a real working environment).

I wanted to expose for the metal.. which made everything else almost black, so I used strobes (on mono pods held with other members from my local camera club) to shape the scene.

I knew I needed a main light and I wanted a rim to add some depth to the image.. If I had just tried to capture the image without flash, Id either have a black image with the metal exposed or white metal with a very flat looking image.
