Coloured Gel for Flash
Can anybody tell me where to get coloured gel for flash. Any recommendation and what is the price range?
I do have a Cokin filter system where you can puchase the coloured filter, but I think it is cheaper and more convenient to get the gel right?!

Re: Coloured Gel for Flash
In most cases it is more expensive to buy coloured gel. You can get them from Cathay Photo Store or some cellophane paper might do the job. Be aware that if you are using cellophane paper on studio strobes to not turn on the modelling light for too long or it would start to melt away due to the intense heat. A coloured gel for studio strobes would melt too but as it is a lot thicker it takes a lot more to melt it.
