Only normal film left in your stash but you still want to shoot and have a better images? Well, by using a filter/gel it will give your photos a twist and better looking color for the images, but two colors are much better and creates more unique colors!

What you will need:

  • Double adhesive tape
  • Diana Flash Gels
  • Scissors/Cutter

1. Take 2 colored Diana Flash filter/gels of your choice.

2. Use the double adhesive tape to attach the two filters.

3. After attaching the 2 filter/gels put them directly to rectangular opening of your camera through which you can see the back of the lens.

4. Load your film and shoot!

Here are some of the results:

Next time, I will not forgot to stick them to the camera so the filter gels won’t move!

    Ah, a question: you normally exposed the film or do you have under/over exposed?

    the shots feels smoother using a colorgel inside the camera.

    @nelemson and @lomographer-88 idea would be to use acetate sheets, I found it in a stationery shop (30 cents of euro for A4 format sheet)
