I may start working as a staff photographer shooting events at various clubs soon. I was wondering where to buy filters to match my speed light to the ambient light temperatures. I can't imagine how many filters I would need or really where to begin. This is a pretty vague question but, any advice?

To use Rosco gels, you need some sort of gel holder.
Alternatively, you could use Honl filters (require a Velcro strap though :)):

I much prefer the Rosco strobist collection. There's a couple of each size in the package which also doubles as a neat transport case.

You're welcome. They're a nice gift for photographer friends as well.

Or use tape ;)

That's what I do. The only problem with gaffer tape is that I try to reuse pieces and thus leave them on the flash. There's gaffer tape all over my gear and my bags by now...

You can buy Velcro from places like Home Depot and Loews.

They have it in various widths and lengths.

Thanks a lot! Annoying with canon's system you have to do this. Nikons sb-900 is nicely integrated with filters right in the box.
