Tipster Of The Week: Colour Filters, The Sweety Kind

Having a sweet tooth is already considered as a kind of addiction itself just like taking your camera everywhere you go which is obviously another indication of this unexplained compulsiveness one can have. And when these two are combined, perhaps it can lead to something much more colourful...

COLOUR FILTERS, THE SWEETY KIND. by EDpinhoLEWIS
You know when you get a tin of quality street most of the sweets/chocolates in there (except for the green triangle) are wrapped in a transparent (can let light through) coloured plastic sheet. It had a perfect size enough to wrap over your precious Fisheye or Fisheye 2 lens. To secure them to your Fisheye just tightly wrap a piece of tape around the lens but with out touching the lens itself.

It’s a good thing He didn’t gave up either of these two things he love but manages to give us something of an ecological and yet a very fun tip! Congratulations!

A new Tipster will be selected next week and it could be you! that is if you upload your tips here. See you!
