Board with colorful reflector... ??
Two things have altered not
Since first the World began
The beauty of the wild green earth
And the bravery of Man

I think this technique can only be done by DSLR, unfortunately I use compact camera. I still have no idea whether the filter can be applied on the macro wetlens.
