Ready for some crazy, colourful nighttime light streaks? Or maybe you'd like to capture an indoor scene without having to use a flash?

Ready for some crazy, colourful nighttime light streaks? Or maybe you’d like to capture an indoor scene without having to use a flash?

Prep up your camera on a tripod – or any steady surface, like a table – and set your camera to Bulb (B) Setting. Press the shutter button, holding it for several seconds allowing the available light to stream in. For sharp nighttime shots, you will have to keep steady, or get yourself a cable release. Careful, even a little shake will result in blur.

    additional tip:
    the cable release coming with lca+ (and that is sold seperately in lomo-shop) can be fixed with a screw so you don't have to hold it
    changing the apperature allows you to make longer exposures in brighter conditions (and of course in darker, too, but extend the exposure times!)

    I love this tip because I hate using a flash. This is one of the best galleries that's ever been posted. Beautiful work!
