For every lomographer who has been wanting to make his or her film photos extra interesting, the Magazine has lots of tipsters to use as reference. The past weeks’ featured tipsters may come in handy, so read on for some tips on how you can make your film photos stunning!

In the past two weeks, the Tipster section has seen some neat tricks for making those film snaps extra colorful and eye-catching.

Lomographers sixsixty and walasiteodito, for example, suggest that you add some neat patterns and rainbow colors to spice up your usual subjects! You have two choices: either embed those funky patterns in your photos through a DIY Rainbow Polka Dot Filter or flood your frames with different colors through DIY Color Gels with a Twist!
