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.

Camera Modification: Turn your LC-A+ into a Rainbow Camera! Personally I am a huge fan of redscaling. It allows you to get some color in your photos, even on the grayest of days. But what if you just want to add the redscale effect to just some of your photos rather than shooting an entire roll this way? Easy enough: use a red filter! And while you're at it, why not throw in some other colors as well?! Read on to find out how you can turn your LC-A+ in to a rainbow camera!
166+ Series #21: Tipster 166+ - Aperture Priority Aperture priority, great composition opportunities, lower control, and incapability of taking good pictures with rapid movement of the subjects. How do we use this technique with the Lubitel 166+ and what kind of advantages/disadvantages do we have with Aperture Priority? Is it worth it?
Use Two 110 Films on a 35mm Camera for Crazy Awesome Shots So there are a lot of tipsters and hacks on the web for using 35mm film on different format cameras, so I went and tried using 110 on a 35mm camera, and this is pretty much what I got on my first try. It’s a bit of a process, but it’s also lots of fun, then again, what in Lomography isn't?
