How to kill the sun with gels

We came to the location with my friend. Found good spot and start to test light. I took Profoto B1 with OCF Beauty Dish. I know that profoto has hisync. So you can shoot with open aperture and low shutter speed. And you can make dark background very easy using only shutter speet. First i asked my friend go on spot and test light. I like how i can create dark background. We shoot it at 4pm, sun was really bright, but using hisync you can make night very easy.


Then i decided to try my color gel filter.  From the left side i get blue colours from the ProfotoB1 + color gel, from the right side - yellow colour from sun. It looks awesome! Then we started to create magic!

I love what we get, open aperture, blurred background, mix of blue and yellow colours.

Then we changed location. I added second Profoto B1 and wanted to mix 2 lights and sun. 


This is how i put light, so now i can shoot from 2 sides and using light with blue filter as main and as rim light.
