I understand the Rosco gels have the nutritional value of beef stew.
Very nice! Maybe you should set up a best food gel competition! :)
I'm surprised the light went through all that! Very tasty solution.
Has anyone tried bacon? Maybe it'll be nice and crisp after a long session... I could imagine some very nice tones (going towards brown as the bacon cooks...)
Awesome. I'd hate to get the strobe all sticky after the fact....and I thought I was creative using different colored plastic bags.
Ooohhhhh that Necessity... always having kids....
Set to manual, +3EV :)
This was fun. Thx.
So he's up the side of a very steep looking slab of ice, carrying a D3s, sb600, sb800, and SU800, and says that in order to "minimize the kit brought to keep the pack light, flash accessories were limited". Made me chuckle - them Rosco gels must be heavy!
I would be scared to death of the sticky and melted mess they would leave behind.
I am curious how many stops were lost.
Innovative...by any means necessary
I once used food coloring added to a rectangular clear bottle of water to get a color "gel". I think it is "Fuji" brand water, available in many stores in the USA.
No gaffers tape, velcro, or straps needed! Just bend 'em and stick 'em!
Red, Green, Yellow, CTO all good. But what unearthly flavour gives you blue?
I've never liked the flavor of Roscoe gels!
Not sure if this would interest you in anyway but have a look when you get some time. It's a promo for McDonalds here in American Samoa and all we used for lighting was a LED torch and an iPhone 4 lighthttp://whitcombemedia.blogspot.com/2011/02/mcdonalds-samoan-burger-photo-shoot.html
Perhaps a bag of Cheerios as a gobo? Could make for some interesting shadows on the walls...
Mmmmm, tasty! Will you be providing these at the Flashbus tour? I'm pregnant and get hungry every 2 hours.
I am a sick unit. As I read this I decided to take fruit roll-ups on my March snowshoeing trip in Yosemite. Not, "What shall I take to keep warm and hydrated?" but, "What can I take to get cool lighting?"
I found this information easy to digest..
Says the wise owl- "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a lolly-SB800-pop: a one...a two...CRUNCH"!
"We laughed like little kids."
Lick & Stick gels, my favorite!
LOL I used to use (I guess I still do at time colored balloons. They can be really interesting and versatile. Easy to store/replace and apply :)
