    it's a shot with a colorsplash flash between two color gels. maybe green and blue....i think :)

    It seems like a shot with a coloursplash flash but with two half colour filters, if you just give half turn between colours the flash will shoot two colours.

    color gel from colorsplash flash (or from anywhere I guess) over half of the lens of the camera

  10. hhjm

    Shoot with flash and half yellow gel in front of the lens

  11. brandonmichael

    shot this one with color splash half way turned

  12. saviorjosh

    half way colour gels of green and blue! :)

  13. lomodirk

    A canister as diffusor and half turned colorsplash...

  14. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    mixed filter technique... you turn colorsplash flash not completely to one colour but leave it at two colours and fire the flash, so the object becomes double coloured

  15. pieceofshoot

    coloursplash flash with 2 colour gels; blue & green ; )

  16. anglemort

    yes, half way color gel, i like to do it with holga also. yellow on top, blue on bottom.

  17. breakphreak
    breakphreak ·

    agreed about the color gels on the lens
    too late, though :)

    oh no you guys are wrong! no gels here!! the lens is painted with two different watercolors, pink and yellow, of course after you do this the camera will ALWAYS and shot this way. you like it or you have to waste the camera! ah ah

  19. kuasimudo
    kuasimudo ·

    it's really tricky.. but i bet in "flash and hold it" technique!

  20. gleby
    gleby ·

    I think 2 gels on the lens blue and green and shoot with a splash(ringflash colorsplash)

  21. eyecon

    Since most of the people have already made up their mind, it´s not that easy to switch to something else. Since it is possible to adjust the colorsplash Flash between two gels it might be the right technique. But I think you must get really close to the object to get this effect....

  22. oldskool_rider

    its the coloursplash flash with it set in between two colours
    yellow at the top, blue at the bottom, this is one of my fav techniques with this flash!

    great shot btw!
