What you need:

  • Holga filters
  • Pop 9 camera

“So once I realized how a light bending prism and the Pop 9 interacted with each other I searched high and low for any kind of prism, I broke open kaleidoscopes, used magnifying glasses, and even picked up a broken bicycle reflector from the road and used that. Then I realized that the 3 Holga filters are prisms!” – kylethefrench
