What are ScatterGels?

Lovegrove ScatterGels™ are large, custom screen-printed gels designed to create unique patterned lighting effects in the studio or on location. They are specifically for use with continuous lights with fresnel lenses so you can easily see and manipulate the effect prior to shooting.

What these patterned lighting gels do

These gels simply clip onto the barn doors of a Lupo LED or HMI fresnel spotlight for an instant lighting effect. By scattering the light into dappled pools of texture you immediately can add depth, drama and life to an otherwise flat looking illumination. Depending on the type of light source you have, will make a difference to the hardness or softness of the pattern created. For those situations where you’d like to soften the pattern we recommend either rigging your light in partly spotted mode or add your own sheet of frost gel to diffuse the pattern. Simply place the frost over the patterned gel and clip in place.

How to use ScatterGels™

We recommend that ScatterGels™ are only used with cool running continuous spotlights, like Lupo LED or HMI lights that are cool to the touch.

Always clip the gels to the edge of the barn doors and leave plenty of air gap. For lights without clips on the barn doors, croc clips are available. Do not attach directly to the main housing of the spotlight.

These gels are not suitable for: Lowel ID lights, Bowens / Elinchrom / Prophoto or other studio flash heads, speedlights, blondes, red heads, or Arris. They should also not be used in gel frames that fit behind the barn doors as there will be no air gap and shadow patters will be poor.

Please keep your Scattergels cool. If your light or barn doors are too hot to touch then it’s too hot for Scattergels. Scattergels will curl up and die on hot lights.

Q. Can I use these gels with a studio flash head?
A. The simple answer is no. This is because the light source needs to be a point source in order to project the pattern on the gel. Flash heads have horse shoe or doughnut shaped light emitters, so you would need a fresnel adapter and barn doors in order to use these gels.

    Love how you play with light. Bought your Lovegrove ScatterGels last month, they’re superb.
