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.

Useful Guidelines on Shooting with Ultra wide Lenses Wide-angle lens are further divided into sub-classifications: Wide, ultra-wide and ultra-ultra-wide. Based on current standards, wide lenses for 35mm cameras are those with focal lengths ranging from 24 to 35mm. Lenses are considered ultra-wide if they have focal lengths from 17 to 21 mm, and ultra-ultra-wide if from 12 to 16mm. The New Russar+ is a 20mm lens; hence it falls under the ultra-wide classification. If you have an ultra-wide lens or if you intend to get the Russar+, you might as well make the most out of your precious investment. Read on for a few guidelines on shooting with ultra-wide lenses.
