So you guys have been seeing my tutorials using my SB-800s… I hope.
And with my latest tutorial on fashion setups I used more than just the CTO gels that come with the SB-800. I used some blue, green and red one as well. So some of you have been asking me: “Hey, Yanik. Cool tutorials, but where did you get those colored gels from? I’d like some too!”
So I’ll tell you! Personnaly, I got mine at my local photo store in Montreal called L.L. Lozeau. I got 2 packs with hundreds (yes, hundreds!) of gels for roughly $5.00 each. They were selling the Lee Filters brand. I did some didding and found out that you can actually get them for free straight from there Website HERE. You’ll have to pay shipping of course so it might be cheaper paying 5 bucks at your local photo store than having them shipped from England (unless you live there!).
But wait! There’s more! You can also get some free samples from Rosco as well. Shipping is $7.50 and you can only get 1 set. I also saw the Rosco brand at B&H. You might want to check shipping at B&H as it might be lower. They have them priced at $0.01, so… free. And you can get up to 2 per order. The size is really perfect for flashguns.
Ok, so you ordered them and received them. How do you put them on? Simple, my dear Watson. Scotch Tape. Voila!
