In which our hero devises a plan to secure his filters to the lens of his beloved Mini adding spectacular colors to his images.
I didn’t have the filters yet, but I was immediately thinking of how to secure them to my Diana Mini lens. After some trial and error and a roll of tape I had the answer.
To start, what you need is a toilet paper tube. That cardboard tube from when you’ve finished the roll. That will fit onto the Diana Mini lens perfectly. Take a razor knife and cut a piece 3/4 of an inch off the end. Next, Cut a slit a 1/4 of an inch from one end of this smaller piece. Cut that slit until it almost cuts the entire 1/4 strip off. Leave it connected, though. You’ll slide the filter into this. I taped the backside of mine up to make it last a little longer.
Slide it onto the lens (the filter will will touch the lens, but with no ill effects that I’ve noticed just yet). Set your focus distance, throw in a filter and shoot! It’s that easy.
Here’s a sample of some of my favorite shots using this setup:
