FoilJoy - Flashless Color Delight

All of you colorsplashers out there, listen up! The absence of fresh batteries for my "colorsplash flash":http://www.lomography.com/colorsplashflash recently cheered up my creativity. But as we all know - necessity is the mother of invention!

All of you colorsplashers out there, listen up! The absence of fresh batteries for my colorsplash flash recently cheered up my creativity. But as we all know – necessity is the mother of invention!

I insisted on colorizing my LC-A++ pictures that day so I just took two of the color-foils that came with my Diana+ Flash and glued them in between lens and film with electrical tape (residue free, easily detachable!) leaving a little slot in between the two foils for a little extra light to creep in eventually.

As you see that gap allowed the light to pass without limits in the middle of the picture only. I´ll now start trying to make some “tiffany”- style foils. Maybe that adds some nice color-patterns on my pictures.
