    glad someone took my advice



    they're free filters samples fro Lee, available at any pro photo store, that happen to be the perfect size for going over a flash. a little electrical tape or a stofen omniboune and your'e set. you can then change the color temp or quantity and spread of the light

    This was taken in open shade, the coolest color temp readily available. But witha off camera flash and some filters over it, it makes it look like sunset light. a slight warming filter over the lens would eliminate the blue cast in the shadows

    why do something after the fact when its free and easy to do it before hand. besides, you can't change adding light vs not, so if you are going to use flash, why use a extremely cool color temp when you can almost instantly change it and make it look good

    Outdoors is ok, but the most useful part is matching color temperture indoors with a flash so you don't have mixed artificial light. :)

    I had been using post-it notes on an old flash lol. The light output was shit & im sure the tube hated the extra insulation.

    :ugh:
