Shooting with Gels using Mains Studio & Off Camera Flash – Llandudno Photographic Academy Evening

The key to successful coloured gel photography is experimentation and at this Welshot Photographic Academy Evening in Llandudno you will have the time to test different combinations, understand the impact of each gel, and refine your technique to achieve the desired results.  With the help, support and guidance of our team of expert lighting technicians and photographers you will be shown how understanding the colour temperature of your light source is crucial when using gels. Different gels have specific colour temperatures, and combining them with the existing lighting conditions can produce unique effects.

With our patient and experienced models you will have the time to learn how the placement of your gel in front of the light source determines the way the coloured light falls on your subject. This photography session will be studio based as well as on location in and around the hotel using off camera flash.

Shooting with gels in photography involves using coloured filters, typically made of a transparent, coloured material called gel, in front of your light source to add creative effects to your photos. Gels can be used in various ways, including adjusting the colour temperature of your light, creating mood or atmosphere, or adding a splash of colour to your images.
