So I am new to using flashes (as in very very new). I've seen a bunch of DIY gel holders for the flash, ranging from mounting thingies that gels slide into to simple pieces of velcro.
Also, are there special types of gels that I should get, or does it really not matter? Will theater gels (the ones used in live theater on top of Source Fours) work fine, or is there something special about flash gels? There are a bunch of old cut up ones that would work sizewise on a flash, but is there any reason not to use them? Obviously, the color codes are probably different, I'm guessing, but other than that...
Thanks! This is a great place, and this is one of my first non-lurking posts
Edit> Maybe they aren't different after all actually. I've read many people using Rosco's gels - http://www.bhphotovideo.com …EG&addedTroughType=search
And that happens to be what we use in theater as well. So are they the same?
