Overview Add subtlety and finer control to your lighting with the professional portable Diffusion Gel Kit

When you're lighting a scene, hard lights can create harsh, dramatic shadows, highlighting unwanted features and distracting your viewer's attention from the shot's intended purpose. To give your productions a professional look you need to keep the focus where you want it by softening hard shadows and controlling the intensity and spread of your lights. The best way to do this is with diffusion gels. Once again we come to the rescue by introducing a brand new industry standard product in the DJ Gear line of lighting control products -- the Digital Juice Diffusion Gel Kit.

This essential kit comes with: an assortment of 12 different types of diffusion gel filters, ranging from the heavy diffusion of White Frost to the barely-there diffusion of 1/4 Tough Spun; a stylish DJ Gear Bag to keep your gels organized and easy to transport; and an extra sheet of each of the two most-used filters -- Tough Spun and 1/2 Tough Spun. Each 20" x 24" gel sheet is labeled for quick identification and can easily be cut down to custom sizes. The kit also includes an eight pack of C-47 clips and two sets of additional labels so that you can keep track of your cut pieces. Using diffusion gels is as easy as taking a filter out of the bag and utilizing a few of the included C-47s to secure it to the barn door of a light. You can also use tape to secure it to a gel frame or a window.

The Digital Juice Diffusion Gel Kit is the perfect addition to your professional lighting kit, no matter where you need to shoot. Whether you need to get wider coverage from a hard light or you want to soften shadows and hide blemishes on a subject's face, the Digital Juice Diffusion Gel Kit gives you the tools you need to get the look you want.

What are some specific uses for diffusion gel filters ?

The softer light achieved with diffusion gels can help to reduce facial blemishes and wrinkles as well as to supress unwanted glare in a subject's eyes. Diffusion gels can also widen the beam of a light so it covers a larger area, giving you better coverage per light. They are also great tools to have on set when you're lighting a green screen, giving you the ability to spread the beam of light from a tungsten fixture to provide more even coverage on your background and helping you get a better key.

What is the advantage to having so many different types of diffusion gels?

With a variety of diffusion levels, you can better dial in the level of softening you need for any type of subject and for any type of lighting setup. You can adjust your lighting with more subtlety to make your production more professional looking.

  • Diffusion gels work by spreading out the beam of a light source giving it a softer edge. The wider the beam width is spread the softer the shadows it produces will be. Diffusion gels also help to give your lights a better three dimensional wrap. Above, you can see the effect of adding a diffusion gel in cutting down glare in the subject's face as well as in softening shadows and filling in details.
