Create A Colour Filter For Your Camera

Adding effects to your digital pictures can be time consuming and difficult, especially if you don’t know a thing about programs like Adobe Photoshop. So to help camera lovers with their lack of creativity, one individual has made an invention that requires some craft skills.

An Instructables member by the name of andrewmystery has created a color filter that’s simple to make and can create cool effects for your pictures. By using plastic, Sharpie markers and a knife, the inventor was able to cut and colour a custom camera filter.

Unbelievably, the invention is pretty easy to use. All you have to do is simply hold your coloured piece in front of your camera’s filter and you’ll have trippy-looking pictures you can show off to your friends!
