Colorful Double Exposure Using Color Papers


No flowers? No blue skies during winter season? No problem! In this tipster, you can come up with colorful photos by using colored paper!

Here you’ll learn how to put a heart or other illustrations on colored papers.

Step 1: Place the color papers on a flat surface, arrange them as you like and shoot.
Step 2: Rewind the film and reload it into your camera.
Step 3: Take photos again!

Gradated color papers changed the cloudy sky into blue sky! You can also cut the paper into a round shape and add a smiling face, too! You are the only one who can change the ordinary neighborhood into an extraordinary colorful world! Let’s go shooting now!

Do you want to achieve a similar effect as the photos above? 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.

    I tried something similar doing a double exposure with a photo of my boyfriend over the top of a photo of a brick wall that had been painted in different block colours. It didn't quite pop like these. great photos!
