Camera Flash Gels

Rosco Gel sample packs are a cheap and easy solution for camera flash gels. The sample packs run anywhere from $2-$10 depending on where you get them. We provided a link below to get them for $2.50! ooohhhhh Yeahhhhh!! These gels measure 1.5″ x 3.25″ and fit on most speedlites and are pre-cut and easy to travel with.

More tips
– put gaffers tape on your flash before sticking the “fuzzy side” of the velcro on you flash. This will prevent the gummy sticky residue from getting all over your flash.
– use clear reinforcement labels to prevent the gel from ripping at the hole.

If you find yourself using a certain gel a lot, like CTO for tungsten, consider buying a whole sheet. For speedlites, a sheet will last you forever.
