Using Color Gels for Portrait Photography. Colored lighting filters, or gels, are often used on accent or background lights to enhance an image with sometimes soft, or vibrant colors. For example, attach a Silky Lilac gel to your rim light, Blue Steel gel to your fill light, or Olallieberry Purple Pie gel to your gridded background light to enhance your image with playful colors, and mood or drama.
Printed Gels Are Easy-to-Use: Rogue Flash Gels are easy to identify and easy to use with the color and f/stop loss values printed on each gel. All lighting filters absorb light, and the f/stop loss tells you exactly how much light is absorbed by a particular filter. The f/stop loss values printed on our Rogue Gels were measured with a light meter in a controlled test. These values compare the metered exposure of the bare flash with the metered exposure of the flash with the Rogue Gels attached.
Lightweight and Durable: We make our Rogue Flash Gels from LEE Filters UK materials. They are made from a tough polyester film that will not tear, and they are so lightweight that you can easily slide the entire collection into your shirt pocket.
Use with Rogue Flash Magnetic Light Modifiers: Using Rogue Gels requires 2 Rogue light modifiers (sold separately). To add color to your image simply place a Rogue Flash Gel between any two stackable magnetic modifiers (Rogue Flash Gel Lens, Rogue Flash Grid 45, or Rogue Flash Diffuser Dome).
