Should be fun to play with.
yea I have the roscolux filterpack
they work pretty good if you use them with your flash
how do these work?
they are just sample packs of available gels from those companies. however they happen to be just the right size to use on a flash head
do what I did..
Get one of those big metal rings. you know the kind you can open and close. Take the center piece ouf of the pack. and slide all your filters into the ring that can open and close, this way you can keep all your little gels organized
that is the plan.
pictures using them?
not yet. i have a couple scenes i want to try with gel'd flash, sadly i am off for other things this afternoon.
2 ab800's + gel'd 580ex's ftw
image taken in complete shade, 550 off camera on a light stand with 2 gels. Makes it look like sunset light
insted of 2 yellows you should have put a yellow and an orange or red.
why do they call it "Geled"
Are you gellin?
Oh, I'm totally gellin
Wowly shit........I would have NEVER guessed that wasnt a sunset!
it was full straw and a 1/2 ct orange
the final image was on film, this was a test shot.
to the trained eye, you'll notice the really cool color temp of the shadow area. adding a very slight warming gel to the lens will make it look a bit more natural.
that's what i'm saying it looks really yellow, but you did do a good job making it look like sunset though. maybe since the 1/2ct orange wasn't enough should have maybe went 1/4 red
dunno maybe. that was a while ago. it was on provia, so it was probably really yellow. bbut the grass needed it to stand out. none the less it shows what you can do with them.
walter iooss jr uses them a lot with his SI swimsuit models since its always sunset on the beach kinda shots.
The thing that would set me off asking myself if the photo was real is the reflection on his beard....its overly yellowish/greenish like Pete is saying
google bitch, use it
so how do you get ahold of these sample gelsets?
poppoff: IIRC from theater lighting days, they were originally made out of gelatin or something. The good old days with bastard amber jokes.
any PRO photo store carries them. B&H sells them for .01, but like $4 for shipping.
