Sometimes we use a regular film, take some good shots and finally after developing the results are not what we wanted, some color and magic is missing. Here's a simple way to add more color to your pictures by following 3 steps.
You will need:
Get some cellophane paper at any paper store
Cut circles ( 2 or 3 centimeters more than the lens diameter )
Use the elastic bands to attach the paper to the lens but be careful to not to leave wrinkles on it, otherwise the picture will be a little blurry.
You can mix their colors, use double layers of a color, whatever you want!

You can also play with the cellophane, use it half frame, on a corner or even on your flash!
Take a step closer to your subject and discover a whole new realm of amazing patterns and shapes. Add the signature colors from a redscale film for an amazing architecture shot that's truly POTD material!

Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
