Playing with filters

May 19th, 2008

A very kind friend of my flatmates dropped by with a chunky roll of scrap filters from the theatre that he works in. Contained within were lots of pieces of four main Lee filter colours, and I decided to stick them up to my window:

Just for reference, here’s the scene without any filters:

This photo is with just the yellow filter. It did appear yellow for a second but the iPhone adjusted, and it came out like this:

Here with just the red filter, pretty cool:

Here’s where it starts to get interesting. I started to overlay the filters, this one is the Red and Blue filters combined:

and this is Red and turquoise, my fave by far:

I can’t believe how infra red some of these photos look! So much fun, I’m definitely inspired to start playing with filters more. Also, putting filters onto flash heads will definitely be interesting.
