Filter Holder + Filter for the La Sardina

12

I bought a filter set with lots of different colors a time ago. Mainly for a flash and the gray for a neutral density filter. But now I use a couple of different colors to hold in front of the lens.

I take these colors for the experiment:

First, I built a dummy with an old plastic satchel.

You need:

  • color foil (e.g. from LEE)
  • strong paper (or a plastic satchel)
  • scissors
  • adhesive tape

First you cut out two pieces of paper. One with the dimensions of 2.7 × 15.7 cm (1.05 × 6,13 inch) and the second 0.7 × 15.7 cm (0,27 × 6,13 inch).

You put them together with tape to two circles.

Then you attach to the bottom the two rings over a width of about 4 cm (1.6 inch), so you’ve got a simple filter holder. Only to change the distance you need to remove the filter but you don’t take off the holder.

I built out of the same paper a little bag where the filter fit in, and the filter too even if you fold it. He is no longer as nice and round but does his job well.

Now to the results. The order of the filter colors is from left to right in the picture with the color filters at the top (they are numbered).

color filter 1
color filter 1+2
color filter 2
color filter 2 + 3
color filter 3
color filter 3 + 4
color filter 4
color filter 4 + 5
color filter 6
color filter 7
color filter 7 + 8
color filter 8
color filter 1 + 8
At these pictures I don’t remember exactly what colors I used.

The same filter holder I made for my Diana Mini.

The results:

So you can do on simple color film different color effects. I shot on the DM Paradies (similiar to a Kodak) 400 iso with the La Sardina and 200 with the Diana Mini.

If you want to make it only in a certain color look at my tipster where i made a neutral density filter. You can do it with the color you want.
Look here.

Have fun experimenting.
Your Pearlgirl

    My 2015 resolution is to do 12 photography projects, one for every month. In July, I tried freelensing or unscrewing the lens from my SLR and holding it in front of the camera body. By tilting the lens slightly I was able to change the focus. For this experiment, I used my Konstruktor and Olympus OM-1.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
