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.

    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)!

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

    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.
