Thanks for the tip - it is always interesting to see how a related industry uses similar stuff. Also thanks to Mason, I've got some gels to experiment with!Brad
This booklet/thing was included in my roscolux gel sampler...thing... I thought everyone kind of had one, but I guess I got lucky with the latest shipment of swatches (that's what it's called!)
My favourite link for gels is http://www.leefiltersusa.com/PDFs/Lighting/LEELightCat03_TechSel.pdfIts a Lee filters selector for different lighting colour temperatures. Draw a line between the input and output colour temperature and it will find the closest filter in their ranges
Tim,The Rosco pdf has a similar chart that makes filter selection oh so easy. Now all we need is a cheap Chinese knockoff of the Gosen or Minolta Color Meter. Here is another great link for understanding color correction: http://www.aeimages.com/learn/color-correction.htmlMason Trullingerhttp://www.photogels.com
DavidThere is an interesting podcast of an interview with Joel Svendsen of Rosco Labs on the StudioLighting.net website (I think it is Podcast number 10 on their site.)http://www.studiolighting.net/lightsource-photography-podcast-e010-lighting-filters-with-joel-svendsen/It's worth listening to because he covers some interesting ways to use the filters.Anyway...I look forward to seeing you in Seattle!Tony
Just a note from a happy customer, I ordered 3 sets of gels from Mason at photogels.com and couldn't be happier with them.
