LIGHT PEN by gupree

Nothing special, just set your ColorsplashCam on B mode, press and hold the shutter and while you’re on it, just use a flashlight and write anything you want. And when satisfied let go of the shutter to splash the scene with your selected Chakra-colour. This is fun!

I think this is something elpussycat didn’t know, that this is actually can be done with the ColorsplashCam. So grab a camera and let everyone know that you're a Lomographer, now!

    I've tried to do this so many times but I can never find a pen light when I need one. :-(

    Also, I'm pretty sure you didn't mean "ephemeral" (temporary). Did you mean "ethereal" (heavenly; delicate; otherworldly)?

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera.
