Should that time comes where you think your photos lack that certain colours, remember this tip:

FUNKY MASK by go-bot

Okay, this one is pretty simple, but yields some groovy results. First, take a mask, either one works, and put clear packing tape over the hole. Either side works, but my best results came from the convex side. Now, take some sharpies or other permanent markers and ink up the tape. Avoid using overly light or dark colors, they’ll either block out the shot or they won’t be visible at all. Finally, stick the mask back in the Holga, load up some film, and enjoy the funk.

Nothing is not enough anymore now that you know what remedy to use when you got stuck on this kind of situation. Just don’t forget to tell your friends where you’ve learned this first, it’s got to be only here at LomoTipsBlog!
