I just bought some work lights from the hardware store to light a shoot. However the lights were too strong and blinded the subjects. I easily attached the gels to the lights with 2-4 CPs. These frost gels were a great way to defuse the light also helped spread out the light more evenly throughout the space. I also used them to help light a deck party I threw this halloween! Never got hot all night! Great buy!

    Comments about Lowel Tota/Omni Frost Gel - Set of 5 (10 x 12"):

    I have only used these once, but I have not had the melting issues that some others have had. They worked great, and doubling up gave a great enhancement to the diffusion. The "bleeding light" issue can be helped with reflectors. Not much else to say - not much money for a very useful product.

    I use these on top of my work lights and they defuse the harsh 500 W bulbs very well! I was concerned about heat but these do an outstanding job even under high heat. I would highly recommend these for such an affordable price. I will be ordering more.

        Excellent strong gels if you own a Tota or Omni then these are the only gels you should use.

        Works Well; Melted A Couple

        I didn't quite know what to expect when I bought these. I had never used frost gels before, so I didn't know how much diffusion I was going to get. They only add a slight amount of diffusion to a light. It's not like using a softbox or umbrella, it just changes the look slightly. I placed two on a 300 watt Britek lamp and managed to melt them together in one corner. Thankfully after cooling, they came apart and are still useful, though a bit singed.

        Used these to diffuse some PAR38 lighting cans on a live stage. Worked great with 150Watt bulbs!

                  These gels are always great to have on hand. We use them to reduce the heat from the lights on stage. The only thing isn't so great is that there is some light that deflects out the sides of the can.
