Re: Using color gels

I want to explore using color gels in my photography. Looking online it seems most gel kits include barn doors. Paul Buff for example. I’d prefer to use gels with an umbrella or diffuser so the light fall off isn’t harsh.

What’s the reasoning behind using barn doors with gels?

Bard doors are useful if you want to have more control what the light hits. Just depends on what you're doing and how much control you need.
