  • You can come up with lovely long-exposure photographs easily with the LC-A+. Find a sturdy surface or use a tripod to capture the lights during night time. This is great for shooting headlights of cars or other moving lights in your neighbourhood. The possibilities are endless and you never know how your photo will turn out.
  • Unleash your inner artist and experiment with light painting. Get a sturdy tripod, a flashlight and you’re ready to go!
  • Have fun with the flash. You need not worry about getting dark photos with the help of the flash. You’ll get an amazing shot with vignetting at the edges of your photo. To mix it up, pair your LC-A+ up with a Colorsplash Flash or a Ring Flash!
  • Get dream-like images by using a Krab with your LC-A+. Whether you plan to shoot in a pool or under the sea, you’re sure to have spectacular results.
