Review: Rogue Lighting Filters (Gels)

from Ron Martinsen's Photography Blog, 8/23/2011

This is a great solution that is more effective than the competition. They are well designed and durable filters created from LEE Filter™ gels, so the quality is good. The gel-band works well and is easy to use once you get the hang of it. I really loved the case that organizes the filters and the fact that they are all well labeled so I know FOR SURE if I have a half cut or a quarter cut of orange. I also love the wide selection of colors.

Rogue Flash Combination Gel Kits offer you a choice of 20 dynamic colors and correction filters to help create dramatic and theatrical lighting in your images.  Each kit includes 14 color effects gels, 5 color correction gels, and 1 diffusion gel.

Choose from a range of reds, yellows, blues, and greens to punch up an image with color and create mood.  Or, use the correction gels to balance your flash to ambient light. 

Rogue Gels are made from the world’s highest quality materials from LEE Filters UK, the world’s leading manufacturer of lighting filter products.


How are Rogue Gels labeled?

We print directly onto the gels to ensure you always know what gel you’re using.  Rogue Gels are individually labeled with the LEE Filter name of each gel and the gel’s measured f/stop loss value.  Correction filters are also labeled with the Kelvin color temperature correction and camera white balance icon. 

How are lighting gels typically used?

Colored lighting filters, or gels, are often used as accent lights, or to add dramatic color to backgrounds or selected portions of a scene for artistic effect.

Correction filters are typically used to adjust the color temperature of a flash to better match other light sources to improve overall color balance in an image.  For information about our Rogue Color Correction Gel Kit, click HERE.

What flash brands will the Rogue Universal Gels fit?

How do Universal Gels attach?
