With a little tape and colored filters, make your Supersampler/Actionsampler images even more colorful no matter the subject!
A Supersampler or Actionsampler is great!
But always having the same colors in every picture?
“No, but there must be some other option, " I thought to myself.
By chance I had another (unfortunately) broken Colorsplash lying around at home, of which I have just stolen the color filters. Alternatively, other transparent colored films should work reasonably as well with just a little bit of cutting!
Hold the color filters in front of the lens/lenses with a few simple strips of tape. Regardless whether you place a different filter over just one or more lenses, the results are awesome!
Two overlapping filters over a lens is also an experiment worth trying!
However, you should make sure that the sun shines on your lomographic experiments! ;-)

Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
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.

Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
One of the best things about analogue photography is the unpredictability in the outcome of your photos. Make things a little more exciting by trying out an experimental film like the Adox Color Implosion for 35mm cameras!
