Pablo Picasso did it and he did so with impeccable fashion. Try this trick with your Lomo’Instant and you too may have a shot at artistic glory! Or if not, you’d still be giggling after this fun painting exercise.

What you need to do is gather your friends in a dark room and equip yourselves with torches, color LED lights and flashlights. Use a tripod for your Lomo’Instant and put it on Creative Mode with Flash On or Off depending on the shot you’d like to do.

Make sure the room is completely dark and hold the shutter button down. The camera will flash to begin with – after it has flashed, paint some fun shapes with the lights. Make different figures, shapes and streaks like a painter would on canvas. Have a blast with your friends as you all collaborate to make your very own light painting. When you are done, take your finger off the shutter button to finish the exposure. Woohoo, you just made your first light painting Lomo’Instant photo! Keep practicing this technique and you may just find yourself a career in the arts!

Remember these starter tips when you use your Lomo’Instant and you’ll be shooting like a pro in no time.
