    So I'm looking at getting a 3rd ring light. This time I'm looking at a 6" light for some of my macro work. I've found some good ones on amazon that I'm debating on. But I'm also looking for some color filters to go with it, a few came with my mini and I've got some (and can get more) for my large one. But for the life of me I can't find them for a 6" model, do they make them? If not what's the best way I could maybe make my own?

    Not sure if they have premade , but it shouldn't be that hard to make your own from sheets. B&H sells these in a pack Pro GelVivid Colors Filter Pack 12 x 12 for about $10 more you can get Lee.

    Hi from UK I bought coloured gels that I cut to size from Amazon to use with my ring light.
    There is also another type that in not a ring but looks like antenna these lights can be moved to light different aspects
    Just looked on Amazon uk coloured gels photography brought a selection

    Are they safe to put on the light if I have the light lain down? I was hoping to also do some up-lighting using them. I don't want them to melt on me.
