DIY Colour Filters


Want to give your photos a twist of colour? Follow this tipster and have yourself a set of filters to use in no time!

What you’ll need:

  • Colour tinted plastic sheets
  • Ring
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Ruler

Step 1:
Take the colour tinted sheets and draw a box of your preferred size and cut it out using a pair of scissors.

(Hint: Make sure they are at least big enough to cover your camera’s lens)

Step 2:
Using an office hole puncher, align the hole to one of the corners and carefully punch a hole on the cut out.

Step 3:
Repeat steps 1 & 2 for the other colours.

Step 4:
Pass the ring through all of the cut out filters and hook it on your camera or camera step.

Step 5:
Go out and try them out! As you take your photos, hold the filter in front of the lens with one hand. For more colours, try combining two filters and see what you’ll get!
