Tipster of the Week: Plastic Rastafarian Rainbows


There are times that no matter what you do, everything looks dull and paler than you are and it seems like even cross processing won’t help you either. If you’re having this kind of blues, our Tipster here just got the plastic remedy you need!

Rasta Filter for Lomo LC-A+ by life_on_mars

This is a kind of a filter I thought of making for my Lomo LC-A+ that will certainly make your Lomographs more colourful than they already are. For this you will need:

  • 3 sheets of coloured plastics (green, yellow and red)
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Opaque tape
  • Some music preferably Bob Marley

Just cut some strips the three coloured plastic sheets, approximately 0.5 centimetres in width and 3 centimetres in length. then glue them together afterwards. Now we have a three striped filter! Make a hole using the hole punch in the middle of the filter and you’re done! Just stick it in front of the Minitar-1 lens with an opaque tape.

Remember, like you and me this rasta filter loves the sun. On a sunny day for example you will be better off with a 400 ASA speed film . Do your pictures a bit brighter – and no doubt your mood will be gladder!

Good luck!
