Colorful Double Exposure Using Color Papers

2011-12-19 18

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!

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
