    -Clothespin them to my softboxes
    -Do a great job of matching continuous light to existing building lighting
    -Wish them were longer to fit my softboxes. Normally need to cut the portion of a second one and tape them together.

        This sheet is the best value for flash filters. I cut it into small pieces for use with my flash. It should last me a lifetime.

            I always buy my gels from B&H. The price is great and shipping is reasonable. It works as expected. I put it in front of my lights and it changes the color. Perfect!

              Shooting a senior portrait yesterday the clouds rolled in. A bit of creative lighting with the CTO and the warmth returned. This bit of plastic saved my shoot and the client was very pleased.

                This filter is so good, so big and so low cost that it can be cut and used over the flash as a disposable.
                The quality of outdoor portraits becomes stunning.

                  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.

                          I use these like crazy on my flashes. Just cut some strips and affix them with velcro. This allows me to color match my flashes to tungsten light. I also sometimes use this to warm up my light in the daylight.

                          Good value. You can go through these quickly, but not a big deal, just cut another strip.

                            I cut the gel sheet into small sheets to attach over my Speedlites using rubber bands to warm my fill flash during sunsets. It saves a lot of time in Photoshop later. The gel size is large enough to probably last me a couple of decades as I lose or ruin the cutouts.

                              I've used Rosco gels since 1985 and prefer them over Lee gels. Years ago I compared them (and maybe Lee has improved their polymer base) and found the color to be more consistent and the polymer base to be more durable.

                              The CTO gel typically sits in front of my strobe when I'm shooting interiors. They are durable and can last years if kept clean and scratch-free.

                              Depending on the strobe output color temperature, you may need to add more warming gels (or the 2xCTO gel) to get a perfect color balance.

                              Use them on the 5 bulb ephoto fluorescent light kit. a little too small for the softbox, so I used gaffers tape to cover up the excess surface area.

                                Great for converting flash/strobe light to tungsten. It does the job well, and the nice big sheet is good for either cutting down into various sizes for different speedlites, small diffusers and such, or using whole over smaller windows or softboxes. Minor nit pick is it it will pick up little dings and dents if improperly stored/handled, but I can't think of any gel that won't.

                                  The filter is very useful when used over speedlites and camera flashes, I got enough to even give away to my friends since I just need a small rectangle to cover the speedligh. It creates a warm color and diffuses the flash light a little bit. It help to improve the color of the pictures.
