Feeling a little dull and sullen? It's time to brighten up your day and splash some color to your life by whipping out the trusty Colorsplash Flash!
Ever since the birth of photography, there’s been a love/hate relationship with the unassuming flash. On one hand, some say that it’s unnatural while on the other, some say its a necessity. Whichever side you are siding on, one thing’s for sure: the flash IS a part of photography and if we hate the harsh shadows it produces, we must get creative! So the next time you need to light up your photos, bring out you “Colorsplash Flash”: and watch the magic unfold before your very eyes. Turn the color wheel around and around with random gels and snap away to paint your subject in a colorful bucket of light. Try using bulb mode with your analogue goodies and you’re sure to get some mean light streaks in your photos giving it a snazzier look. Check out this gallery from our Photos section to see what I’m talking about!
Chances are you've seen plenty of color-drenched photographs while browsing through the Photos section. Faces painted blue, pets tinted green, and foliage splashed with pink light. It's called "Colorsplashing," one of Lomography's earliest techniques for giving your shots a quick color boost. We dug through the Lomography archives to revisit "The Chakras of Colorsplashing," a special project created by Lomography and Staple Design six years ago.
Colorsplashing can do wonders to your image. It can alter the mood of your image, enhance colors, or introduce a totally new perspective! Advanced photography skills are not required here; all it takes is a Colorsplash Camera (or Flash) and your imagination. "Paint" your dog green, dye your friend's face with pink light ... the possibilities are endless! Here's a list of Colorsplashing techniques to try from daytime to nighttime.
