This is even better than getting the free gels from Rosco or the cheap sample packs from B&H / Amvona. A Strobist gel kit.
This awesome Rosco Strobist 55-Piece Filter Kit is great for both color correcting your flash head to match your surroundings: fluorescent, tungsten and daylight. All of under $10! The kit includes the following:
- 46 color correcting gels
- 9 fun, colored gels, to play with
- See a list of all the gels included here
I also recommend picking up this adapter to hold your gels. It’s Velcro enabled so if you have Velcro on your flash head already it’s great – if not try the Honl Velcro Flash Strap also under $10.
It’s perfect for your Strobist 55 set gel kit – and handy for any other use of gels on your strobe – should you want to test some sample colors from the sample packs or cut down full sheets once you find a color you are crazy about! Well worth the $15 to add a professional look to your use of gels – duck tape and non-wind resistance doesn’t always cut it in the real world!
