a long time ago I remember a shot done with a gel over the lens and a gel over the flash... anyone remember how to tell what colors cancel what?

Just check a color wheel from jr high school art class! Those across from each other will cancel each other out. That way the flash and filter will be canceled for the subject and the background will take on the color cast of the filter over the lens. It's fun to experiment with.

Rolando covers this in many of his workshops and shows examples.

This is mainly from my experience in video, but I used Lee filters for lighting. You can call Lee direct or go to a dealer and get a free swatch book with all their gels. The divider page for each gel has all the technical info listed. I always use mine.
