Turn the Lights Out!

6

Turn out all the lights and have your model hold a detachable flash in her hands!

For these pictures I turned all the lights off and had my model hold a detachable Coloursplash flash in her hands. I set my Holga on bulb setting and held down the trigger. Every time she pressed the flash button she would move into another position.

My model would mix it up and choose different colour filters to put on the flash to create crazy colours.

They didn’t turn out quite as I expected. Most were overexposed but still pretty cool.

    How long did you leave the shutter open for - or was it a matter of guessing?

    I used my holga so if you set it on bulb mode you can just hold the trigger down and the shutter stays open as long as you want

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    Lomo Amigos: The Oscillation

    The Oscillation are a UK-based Psychedelic space-rock band formed in London in 2006. The band's live shows are a cacophony of growling guitars and hypnotic drum rhythms accompanied by some trippy analogue light shows from experimental filmmaker Julian Hand and light show artist Julian Hand. We gave them an LC-A+ and sent them out into the night! Read on for more.
