Now we all know that there are gels for our strobes right?
Me personally I don’t use them a lot as effect lights on my models, but sometimes it’s just pretty cool to play with them.
One of the things you have to be careful with is to use the proper mix of natural color (non gelled strobes) and colored gels. I always try to only use the colors as the accent lights, not hitting to much of the face. But of course…. whatever you like you do, it’s all creativity
As you can see there are many different ways to use your gels, add some smoke for the real magic of course, but you can also do it without smoke. I hope the following samples will trigger you to also start experimenting with your gels.
