your 2 or 3 lights may be able to compensate depending on how bright they are. Now that I think of it, you might want one light to emulate the moon, and that would have a blue gel. You may use use some other lights to create lighting that looks like it’s coming from street lights or something. Those most likely won’t have gels on them.
Gels are a colored, plastic-like filmmade to be attached to the front of a light to change it’s color. They are made to be able to withstand the heat from the light.
