Gels & Diffusion: Everything You Should Know – Part 1

We’d all like to have a professional lighting technician, and an unlimited budget to get the perfect lighting setup for the perfect scene.  But the reality is, most of us are lucky to have 2 or 3 lights in our arsenal.  Knowing how to control your lights can help maximize their potential. In this two part segment we talk about the properties of light, and using gels to control the color, intensity, quality, and color temperature of your light sources. Learning to use lighting tools properly will help you create a great looking scene, even if you’ve got limited resources.
