What would be the reason to gel a beauty dish?

To match it with the ambient or create a nice warm look.

I just tape my gels to the side of the dish / over the central deflector. A gel sheet isn't going to diffuse the light enough to subtract any of the beauty dish effect.

Exactly. Maybe if you use a bedsheet as a gel it would take away from the BD look.


Now with added bokeh. (Good lenses are irrelevant, apparently. Just add bokeh and textures in post. It's the in thing.)

I didn't see this effect when gelling my beauty dish. However, I'm using clear gels. It might be different for matte gels.

Yeah mine are not fluted. Just tinted clear.


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.
