Color filters on Supersampler/Actionsampler

With a little tape and colored filters, make your Supersampler/Actionsampler images even more colorful no matter the subject!

A Supersampler or Actionsampler is great!
But always having the same colors in every picture?
“No, but there must be some other option, " I thought to myself.
By chance I had another (unfortunately) broken Colorsplash lying around at home, of which I have just stolen the color filters. Alternatively, other transparent colored films should work reasonably as well with just a little bit of cutting!
Hold the color filters in front of the lens/lenses with a few simple strips of tape. Regardless whether you place a different filter over just one or more lenses, the results are awesome!

Two overlapping filters over a lens is also an experiment worth trying!
However, you should make sure that the sun shines on your lomographic experiments! ;-)

    Thanks for sharing this great idea! I tried with my Supersampler. The first roll did not turn out so well, because you really need a LOT of natural light (I know it sounds obvious, but I didn't realise it until I saw the photos.) Anyway, I charged another roll, and now all I have to do is waiting for the sun to shine!

    doesnt it also depend on the ISO/film speed of your film grinny? try for a higher one, like 200 or 400
