They are the perfect size for my speedlites & free. how cool!
free?? do tell
viper recommended them
go to lee filters website, find your local distributor. just tell the some crap like your setting up a studio and ask for a swatch book
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
I think it is pronounced mr. Ree... ...Are filters really necessary these days with photoshop :/
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 like studios.
true, though I don't think that'll ever get used properly here
I do it all the time
having colored filters like this is great for some creative night photography.. that's why I want them.
In for Prof Phi's write up on indoor flash color balancing
B&H sells the full Roscolux sampler for $.01 (one cent!)

I think Rosco makes more different filters than Lee and you really can't go wrong for a penny.
i have a couple of EZ's like in the photo, im going to use them with the filters to try and light a background next ween when I try some studio shots
I should start using these
Yeah...i used to play around wtih putting other shit infront of the flash, got some strange results
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.
Oh don't worry, I got way more inventive than post it notes
we used a post it note with a pencil hole pocked out in front of a lens baby and got some weird ass but cool pics
