Color the World Around You!

Want to know how to go around coloring the world without a marker? Here's a couple of tips to get you started!

If you’re one of those lomographers who have tried it all, crossed processing, redscale, black & white… and your still not convinced with the colors on your lomographies, there’s still one possibility.

That’s because, coloring your shots without using a marker is possible.

What do you need?

  • Transparency sheets (overhead projector paper)
  • Color cellophane paper
  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape
  • Beginnings or endings of medium format film

With all these materials you can start building your filters, (on the photos you can see some examples), depending on the variety of colors that you want to get on your photos, the filters will have more or less colors.

How to use the filters?
The filters should be positioned on the front part of our camera’s lens so we can get the desired effect, in this case, give our lomographies some color.

The only thing left to do is to take a walk and color the world around you!

    i love the photos! sweet tip. may i know what iso film will you recommend for this? because i prefer the lighter looking ones than the darker tone ones. so i was wondering if you used different iso film or just different lighting conditions? thanks in advance! :)

    did you tape the filters inside your camera or just hold them over top the lens?

    beautiful stuff, I'm guessing a 400 speed film?
