I can't believe a month has gone by. Mentally I am not prepared to do another session tomorrow.

Last month everyone wanted gels to be the next subject. I know there were a few people that could not make Wednesday evening. Would people be okay if we changed this months meeting to Thursday the 12th? I can host, but is there someone out there willing to talk about gels in whole or in part. There are three areas of topic that I can see when it comes to gels; color adjustment (making background warmer or colder than subject), color detail (changing background, kicker lights, enhancing color), and intro to light painting.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Definitely wants to know a little more about color gels. Please count me in if you found a speaker. Thanks.

I only know how to color with gels. Haven't used them to color-balance yet. It would be nice to learn more. Same time frame as the last Session?

Any chance we could move the meeting to Wednesday the 11th, pretty please?

(Boring background details: Thursday evenings I have an ACE Photoshop class and Friday evenings I'm shooting high school football [until the end of football season])

Sounds good to me, count me in. Also, color correction for common types of lighting (tungsten and fluorescent for example). Maybe some tricks like using gels to do things like make the sky more blue would be fun to talk about as well.

I will try and make it. If we cannot find someone who can explain gels, I could bring my " Strobis t" seminar CD ( plays on laptop only ) and we could excerpt the gels talk, and do a demo along with it? You have tungsten how about a portable/temp fluorescent set up to correct?
Sorry, can't make this one. I'm shooting at a big casino night fundraiser at the Hollywood Theater with the Rose City Rollers that night. Can't wait for the empty condo shoot, though!

Count me in either way. I have not used gels since the 1980’s and so have nothing to ad to this, but I’d like to hear more from those who do.

My vote is for Wednesday 11th -- but you knew that already ;-)

I'm in for either date. I cannot add much in the line of knowledge, my attempts with gels have varied.

Thursday the 12th works better for me! I have a couple huge sheets of gels that I got and cut up a few pieces for myself, so I would love to have others help me split the cost of the full sheets. Been hanging onto the full sheets for almost two years now...
What time?

I'm working on some gel stuff (see my stream), but don't have comprehensive curriculum, as it were. Will keep in touch.

I could make Thursday. Maybe a little jet lagged as I get back from shooting in Hong Kong Thursday afternoon, but it will start being morning in my time zone at that evening.

I've been using gels for color background and foreground highlights, as well as to make skys bluer when balancing for warm gel fill flash. Not a gel but colored lights; I've been using an ultrabright RGB stage light for back-of-head color highlights through hair lifted with a battery leaf blower. I wouldn't have time to prepare anything, but I have both saturated gels and color correction gels. You may note a few gels in my stream.

Sorry folks, but my life has been a little too crazy lately. I am cancelling this month because I have left everyone hanging. I am truly sorry for that. I am going to post the signup for next month and start preparing now.

Again, please accept my appologies.

k, I talked with Newspace Center for Photography about using the studio space from 6:30-9:30pm this Thursday night (and it looks pretty good), but they can't confirm until tomorrow morning. So i'll keep you guys posted.
So let's all cross our fingers, cause this would be a great place to have our monthly mini-learning meetups.
hatchbackmedia 9 years ago
I have a space that could be used for a monthly meet if you all can kick down $5 or so. It is the studio space I rent. It is LARGE and generally available evenings. We have backdrops, a few AlienBees etc. HOWEVER, I will be out of town this thursday to the following monday. If whoever is the organizer wants to contact me, please do so here and I can send you my cell etc.
