In a Facebook group i've been posting some self portraits using off camera flash, plenty of people are saying I should use gels to balance the flash color temp. to the warmer ambient light. I've learned for now that I can take the target adjustment tool in camera raw and select the skin tone and warm it up some. Whats your take on gels?
I did warm up this image as a whole because it was around 4 p.m.

I use them sometimes for interiors but rarely for portraits especially outdoors.

Then how do you match color temps? Or is that done with good balance of ambient light and flash exposure
