| p.1 #9 · How often do you really grid and gel? |
I don't currently grid my flashes (Speedlite 600EX-RT) I just zoom them in or out. Is a grid really necessary? Sorry for the ignorant question, I did plan to test it eventually, but it seems to me like zooming my speedlite to 135mm or 200mm would do the trick in 99% of wedding related lighting scenarios.
I occasionally gel for tungsten... however most times I prefer the unmodified, ungelled look of pure (daylight balanced) white light that comes out of the flash. I may be wrong, but it also seems to me like the gels subtract something from the overall color spectrum, and even after adjusting the whitebalance I notice that the skin tones don't look right. Anyone else notice this?
