Hey Everyone,

I have one of my Einsteins and am receiving the second one on Friday. I am trying to figure out how the heck I am going to mount a gel on the light inside a softbox without having the thing melt to my flash. I am sure this has been discussed many of times but I just want a quick answer. Also where you guys get your gels would be great. I am looking for all the cuts of CTO and CTB for sure.

My novatron kit has a gel holder attachment built into the barn door set I have. I am sure there is something similar for your strobes. It will get toasty and prob melt if you leave the model lamp on, yes.

I probably wouldn't be using the modeling lamp on because I am more concerned about location work and matching the ambient or creating a cool effect on location more than in the studio where I would have the modeling lights on.
