SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SO WHY USE LEE FILTERS GELS OVER OTHER GELS?
Well it may be easy to think that gels are all the same, after all its just a little bit of plastic right? Unfortunately thats not the case, but take it from somebody who has probably used more gels than most that LEE filters certainly produces a superior product. One of the most important differences with LEE filters is the thickness of their gels, the extra thickness in their gels gives me a much richer and more even colour spread with far less of a ‘hotspot’ over the cheaper thiner gels. The added benefit of this extra thickness is obviously durability and when you’re having to use the gels with your modelling bulbs on, thinner gels can warp, buckle and even burn-through very quickly indeed.
OKAY SO LEE FILTERS OBVIOUSLY KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING BUT WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT YOUR COLOURED GEL PACKS JAKE?
LEE filters is one of the largest gel manufactures in the world and as with most gel manufactures they specialise in gels for stage lighting, TV shows and big films so they make these gels on massive rolls and usually tend to sell them like that to. For us photographers we don’t tend to need huge rolls of twenty different colours as that can get pretty costly very quickly. What I’ve been able to put together here are packs of smaller sheets specifically designed for both strobes and speedlights. Also LEE filters makes upwards of nearly a thousand different gels so knowing where to start and what colours to go for can be a bit daunting to begin with. The packs that I’ve put together use colours that I use regularly to provide maximum colour saturation and that work well in conjunction with one another based on strong colour theory and years of trial and error.
AWESOME THAT SOUNDS FANTASTIC, BUT CAN I ONLY USE THEM ON STUDIO STROBES OR ARE THEY FINE TO USE ON MY SPEEDLIGHTS TO?
Yes you can use them on your speedlights and any other flashgun as well as your studio strobes. The size of each of the sheets is 10’x12″ (255mmx305mm approx.) so you could even cut a strip off the bottom of them and use that for your speedlights and still have a large enough gel left for your strobe.
