A very quick tip that gives you vibrant, rainbow-coloured photographs on ANY camera, be it toy, SLR or even (dare I say it?) digital!
I have found that not many tipsters cater for my Canon SLR, so I decided to have a bit of fun the other day.
I took the colour flash filters that came with my Diana Flash and arranged them on a piece of tape.
I then used another piece of tape to attach them gently to the lens of my Canon.
This would be easier to do on a Diana or Holga, as you wouldn’t have to worry about being able to twist the lens to focus, but you would have to set the focus settings before you attached the filter.
You are now ready to go and start shooting! With an SLR, you can kind of see the colour effect through the viewfinder but I found the photos came out much more vibrant than what I thought they would look like.
And here are the results:
I shot on high-speed colour negative film, but I’m sure that using slide film on a sunny day and then cross-processing could produce an even better effect!
Ideas for multilens cameras:
Covering different lenses with different colour filters. The combinations are endless!
The best part is, when you’re done, you remove the tape and your camera is just as it was before!
