Recently I ordered a "Tunnel Vision Lens":http://shop.lomography.com/tunnelvision/ from Lomo for my LCA, Holga and Lubitel. This lens is so multi functional! So when mephisto19 gave me the hint that the macro lens that is included in the Tunnel Vision Lens can be held in front of almost every lens we thought about my Instax Mini 7.
Recently I ordered a Tunnel Vision Lens from Lomo for my LCA, Holga and Lubitel. This lens is so multi functional! So when mephisto19 gave me the hint that the macro lens that is included in the Tunnel Vision Lens can be held in front of almost every lens we thought about my Instax Mini 7.
At home I immediately gave it a go. First of all I held the lens in front of my eye to figure out how close I can get to the object I want to take a picture of (nice side-effect: the macro lens stuck to my spectacle frame). With the Instax Mini you can get as close as 1cm to the object. Hold the lens with your thumb and index finger in place, approach the object and press the release (Be careful to cover the lense of the Instax Mini completely.)
But the first problem arose: the automatic flash! The Instax Mini is far too sensitive when it comes to the flash. It fires even when you think that there is enough light. So when you do the macros indoors, like I did, then make sure there is enough light or your image will just be white because of the flash that reflects from your motive. I chose white orchid blossoms for a first test. They turned out great as long as there was no flash. The automatic flash was really annoying! So I though about a method to lessen the flash effect. The colourfilters came to my mind. I taped an orange one in front of the flash with some sellotape. Et voilà! The white light of the flash was now orange and the blossom wonderfully tinged in orange instead of bright white. You can also take any other colourfilter or use some very thin white paper that diffuses the flash. Try to take a picture of your eye or of other filigree things like shells or old keys.
