Create a Filter

With all of the digital manipulation & filters being used lately, we wanted to do some experimenting with real, tangible filters. But, not the same old ones that we're used to using for corrections. So, a few of us at KEH Camera went on an assignment to play with creating our own filters for fun effects out of everyday household items.

To do these, we took two basic filters and sandwiched our chosen medium in the middle. Then the filter sandwich was attached onto the lens like normal. The first shots are: camera, lens, filter, and the second shots are: camera, extender, lens, filter.
