Why Use Flash Gels?
Colored lighting filters, or gels, are often used on accent lights, or to add dramatic color to backgrounds or selected portions of a scene for artistic effect.
Color 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.

About Rogue Flash Gels:
We manufacture Rogue Gels using raw materials sourced from LEE Filters UK. We select our favorite colors for each gel kit, then print relevant information onto each gel before die cutting them to our own universal design. Rogue Gels are designed, printed, cut, and packaged in packaging printed in Santa Cruz, California.
Caution: Your Flash Gets Hot
When attached to your flash, Rogue Flash Gels are designed to arc over the face of the flash, leaving a gap between the hot flash lens and the lighting filter. Do not pull the Rogue Flash Gel tight against the flash, but instead leave space between the gel and your flash’s lens.
Powerful flashes (GN 50+) fired at 1/1 full power can produce enough light energy to cause warping in the darkest gel colors (3+ f/stop loss values) when those gels are placed too close to the flash’s lens. Gels warped by heat appear wavy in the affected area, but they are otherwise fully functional. To prevent gel warping, leave a gap between the gel and lens when attaching the gel.
Multiple full power flashes fired over a short period of time will cause your flash’s lens to get very hot. It is possible for the darkest gel colors to melt and stick to your lens if they come into contact with the lens during high power, high volume shooting. Leave a gap between your flash’s lens and the attached gel to prevent the gel from sticking to the lens.
Flashes fired at less than 1/1 full power will not cause gel warping, and lighter gel colors (less than 3 f/stop loss) are not susceptible to warping.
