Red and Green Filter Tip

3

If you're lacking in inspiration and are tired of the same journey into work each day fear not! With this simple filter technique you can inject a whole new burst of colour into your photographs. Read on for more information.

Sometimes it’s hard to be inspired to take photographs when you see the same sights day in, day out. I wanted to create some unusual photos documenting my journey work. I used my trusty LCA+ and a roll of 400 colour film.

I put a green filter over the lens and shot randomly and quickly (sticking to the Lomography rules of course!) the i rewound the film, making sure to leave a little bit out. I then re-shot the film with a red filter over the lens.

It didn’t take me too long and the results are quite interesting and very colourful! I love the random effects of creating double like this. I’m definitely doing this again but might try a stronger green filter next time. ENJOY!
