What is a gel? “A color gel or color filter, also known as lighting gel or simply gel, is a transparent colored material that is used in theater, event production, photography, videography and cinematography to color light and for color correction.” ~ Magnum .

How talented are Josie and Reese with this Gel Challenge! Getting these in-studio images into post production and starting in on the editing process, it just seemed that they would benefit from some fun image overlays. I pulled several landscape images from a Big Bend wilderness trip I took a few years back. One was a Milky Way shot and another was a photo of this 150 year old lead mine in the middle of no.wherezzz in the desert south of Big Bend. In fact it was about 50 miles from any paved road. I used these images a little to promote my model team this year playing off of a 1980’s arcade vibe. Totally radical dude!
