              I have a small home studio for a weekly video webcast. My studio light is fluorescent lights and I wanted to "tone it down". The filter does the trick. I cut to size and placed inside the light cover.

                    Use over flashes for warming the light output to match with indoors tungsten available light or for special effects for outside shots. Use 2 or more sheets for doubling the effect as needed.

                                            These gels did the job. They weren't cut EXACTLY straight but they were pretty close. We also doubled them up for a full CTO and that also worked well.

                                              I got this filter for my new LED lights. I needed to drop the 6500k temp to around 4500k and this filter will accomplish that.

                                                I use this gel for a rimlight on a sunny day when shooting in the shade of course.

                                                  It's a huge sheet of paper, it will last forever. Cut the way you want it and attach over the flash.

                                                      I taped the 1/2 CTO gel over my sb600 flash to make images look warmer. Nice effect.

                                                        These are used with various strobes. Similar to full CTO gels hey take 5500K light and partially match it to tungsten. Useful for indoor work were your ambient will mix in, or making Daylight in the background turn really blue, but you don't need the full CTO effect!!
