    I went to **CENSORED** and picked up some Avery "Insertable Plastic Dividers" Basically colored folder dividers. They are made of light see-through plastic. My project is to tape the colored plastic over my flash. I basically have filters for my flash. I've also thought of putting these over my flashlight to make a colored spotlight for my night photography.

    I wonder what effects, if any, it would have on Black & White with or without lens filters???

    That is a cool idea. I really like the effect it has. Instead of shooting with a lens filter this is a good alternative. I really like how it manipulates the shadows. Can you post some pictures of 3-D objects.

    Several Vivitar flashes come with a variety of colored filters. And then there's the Lomo Colorsplash; it's a plasticky PNS that has a rotating colored flash filter.

    I think the idea is for those who dont have them, a way to do it without emptying your pocket ;)

    Yup, I bought the same thing Jadin did. 6 colors, enough of each for quite a few filters/gels all for the low price of $2.99
