In the old days of film, we would take indoor social club flash pictures and would correct the pictures by using coloured gels. The idea was to deliver a perfect exposure with the flash, and use the gels to correct for the color of the background. It seems so long ago that I can’t remember if the gel was on the flash, the lens, or both! Thanks in advance.
