Color Your Spinner


If your lab is saying something is weird, you did it right!

This tipster is very simple but effective. Use some colored plastic (I dared to use my colorsplash flash filters) and taped them in front of the slit of the Spinner 360 camera. Now all you have to do is go out in the sun and shoot. Mix any colors you want, change them, use only one…. It is all up to you. But keep in mind that you have to extend the exposure time a bit, as you added something darkish. It is interesting to see how the colors change within one shot whether you have darker or brighter parts.

For the sample shots I used a Agfavista 200 on a bright day and set the Spinner to cloud mode.
I gave the film to an one hour photo lab and getting it back the guy said that the shots look weird and that something must have gone wrong with the film. There I knew I did it right ;)

Enjoy trying and submit some samples here!

    I don't eeeeeeeever let a lab do anything but give me the negatives. The standard machines just won't work (I have a friend who scans my nagatives). Glad it's worked out for you, and this shot is awesome!! :)
