How We Did It
First thing we did was use THIS color calculater and find a color combination we liked. After we had the colors, we searched through our collection of gels to find the closest colors. We had on hand Rosco Apricot and Rosco Steel Blue gels, so we went with those. From these colors we created 'gel-packs', layers of gels put together so as to be easier to use. There is nothing worse than trying to tape three to four gels to a light at the same time. Our gel-packs looked like this:
- heat shield on the bottom,
- then we added a .6 neutral density filther,
- then we added a single layer of either Apricot or Steel blue.
In the end, we made three gel-packs of each color.
