Tape Color Gels!

A super duper cheap way to alter your photos, color-wise!

All you’ll need for this simple trick is wide, transparent tape, various colored sharpies, and scissors!

Grab a piece of tape and COLOR THE STICKY SIDE. This way, the ink doesn’t run as much.

Then fold it in half so that all the stickiness is covered.!

If you want the photo to be split colors, cut the tape in half/horizontally/vertically/diagonally/however-you-please.
Add as many colors as you want! Make sure to save these little guys so you won’t have to waste more ink/tape/time later on.

Tape the piece straight to your lens, try to put the edge as close to the middle as you can.

SNAP AWAAAYY….

And this is a possible variation you might get!

    I tried this with my fisheye and was really happy with the results. I did three gels taped to the lens on a bright day.
