DIY Filters: Shape, Color, and Texture

Photography is about presenting ideas and the visual world in a new way and with a new perspective! Today’s activity challenges you to use everyday objects collected in your home to make creative and interesting images. DIY Filters! A filter in this application is just something you place between your lens and your subject. We will play with shapes, colors, and textures as we experiment with taking photos through various objects. Let your imagination be your guide!

Here are the materials:

  • A device to take pictures with (Camera, smart phone, or tablet)
  • A selection of transparent/translucent/see-through objects from around your home (examples: Glassware, vases, colander, bubble wrap, prescription glasses, plastics, etc)
