This DIY Neon Lighting Trick Is All You Need If You're Broke But Want Great Photos
Might as well get a good selfie while you sit in front of your screen all day.
So I set up a screen in a windowless room in our office and tried it out.
For this experiment I used the portrait mode both on the front and back cameras of the iPhone to give it that dreamy effect you get from neon lights.
I stupidly assumed the Google Image thumbnails alone would give me that blue glow, as with what Arielle Stenner screengrabbed in her tweet.
Of course it didn't work.
So I opened one of the images on another tab and...
Tada!!! I'm blue. 😱 It works! Hoorah hoorah!
So I downloaded the colour image and opened it as a slideshow in Preview, and it came out so much bluer! I looked like a Smurf, but that's exactly what we wanted!
I wanted to experiment with other colours to see which ones would look great on camera, so I tried pink.
My workmates thought it was cool and wanted their own photos.
I tried it with a gradient pink and yellow image, and it didn't work at first.
The yellow and orange tints didn't work well either.
