Are you an avid digital photographer? If so then you might already know this trick. For those of us who still regard photography as something to do when we go on trips or to family events, this might be something new.
Sometimes a white flash isn’t the most flattering to the subject of the photo. In that case, you might want a differently colored flash. This is not so difficult to do as you might think.
There is a product called color gels that will aide you with this problem.
They are sold on the internet and in photography stores in single or multi color packs. They Velcro onto your flash to assist you in getting the perfect shot every time.
Each shot is affected by the ambient light. You can even change the amount of color by adding more of the color gels for a more intense, deeper nuance.
