    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 :naughty: :naughty: :naughty: :bowdown:

  7. 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 :coold:

    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.
     
  19. 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

    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    poppoff: IIRC from theater lighting days, they were originally made out of gelatin or something.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. :big grin:

    any PRO photo store carries them. B&H sells them for .01, but like $4 for shipping.
