Shooting Rainbow Photos with Diana F+

Want even more colorful photos? Grab a pair of scissors, some sticky tape, colorful cellophane, and of course your camera, and let's get crafting!

I fancy rainbows so much that I decided to mix that with my photos.

What you’ll need:

  • A pair of scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • Cellophane in different colors
  • Your camera

STEP 1: Cut strips of cellophane…or cut out any shape, I guess.

STEP 2: Use sticky tape to stick those strips in your camera’s Mask Mount, the area directly behind the lens.

STEP 3: Load a fresh roll of film and capture the world.

I did this experiment with my Diana F+ and the result was awesome!!!

You can also use just one colour or two or three. It’s up to you.

The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.
