To gel, or not to gel!

Emphasising photographic subject can be done many different ways, maybe the most basic form of it is by lighting only the subject, while keeping unwanted background dark., In portraits it is common to use a shallow depth of field to avoid distracting background.
Here I'm demonstrating using different gel colors/temprture to enhance the subject.

The effect can easily be achived in studio, but also can be applied through layer masks in photoshop, by overlaying white balance bracketed JPEGs, or multiple RAW treatment to same file.
