It's no secret that I like playing around with color filters. Here, I'll show you how I created overlapping color images using green and red filters.
You need a LC-Wide and color foil. I used green and red color foils from LEE.
I chose the LC-Wide because I can use it to take the pictures on the whole frame. Also, I can use it to take half-frame shots so I can continuously and completely expose the whole roll of film.
The only difficult thing with this is deciding where one frame starts and the another finishes!
Here’s what I did to get these shots:
1. I cut out the green foil in the right size of the LC-Wide’s lens tape it to the front of the camera.
2. For the roll featured here, I used a normal 200 ISO color film and put the ISO setting to 200.
3. I then shot the roll using the full frame format and the half-frame format to expose the roll completely.
4. After i finished shooting, I loaded the roll back into my LC-Wide and shot with it again using the red color foil.
Thats it! Now i have many new ideas for my next rolls with filters and doubles. But first look to the pictures from this roll:
I really liked the results. They’re really fun to do and I suggest you do it, too!

I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.

It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
