Alteration in spectral quality of natural sunlight by various photoselective gels during summer 2020 in St. Paul MN



Data included here show how various color correction, color conversion, or color effect photoselective gels alter the spectral quality of natural sunlight. Data were collected from three brands 1)LEE filters, 2)Rosco Cinegel, 3) Rosco e-color+, and 4) Rosco CalColor and from 45 photoselective gel models. Photoselective gels are primarily used to alter lighting quality for film and stage production, but photoselective gels can also be used to alter the spectral quality of sunlight in order for plant science researchers to simulate the spectral quality underneath foliage. These data will help plant scientists choose photoselective gels to match the spectral quality of shaded areas, and will help improve the research of the impact of shade on plant growth and development.
