Tried for about the millionth time again to add some colour to my background, but as per usual all I end up with is a murky off-white off-grey wall not the vivid bright splash of colour I wanted. I tried different flash power, different shutter speeds, different apertures etc etc and nothing works. What am I doing wrong? I'm always seeing people use them so easily and end up with really rich vivid colour from their gels, but mine never work!
