Hello,

I made a homemade lightring using white LED's I bought off ebay and all pics have a blue tint to them. I have since purchased a yellow filter and that seems to have corrected the problem. My question is, does anyone know where I can get a true white LED? I'd like to make a new one with lights pointingat different angles toward the center. Been to a bunch of sites and nobody has them. Any help out there?

Wayne

A circular fluorescent will make a good "ring light" too:-)
