Color is something that we see everywhere we go. Do you take time to appreciate all the colors around you? Here’s an idea that you can do to create your own series of photographs bursting with color!

  1. Prepare a few rolls of film and your favorite Lomographic camera.
  2. Load a roll of film into the camera.
  3. Choose a color.
  4. Take your camera with your everywhere you go and take photos of the color that you chose. Stick to that particular color so that you have a whole roll of film with pretty much the same shade.
  5. Once you’re done with one roll, choose another color and do the process all over again.

You can come up with unique and interesting shots if you experiment. The galleries below show a few examples of what you can do:
