Lomography Ringflash: To Get Very Close and to Double Expose

As you are getting closer to your object your Ringflash will unfold all his power! You will surely get some awesome shots. Want to try double exposure with different colors? Ringflash will be also a great partner to your beloved Lomo Camera! In addition your photos will obtain a vintage look.

The Lomography Ringflash is really easy to use. You only need to mount it to your camera Hot Shoe or you can also use it separately as you can press its fire away bottom. This is a great advantage as you can explore all the different possible combinations you have with your camera inner flash, MX button and bulb long exposure. You can check here if its compatible with your Lomography Camera. I’ve also tried it with an SLR and works!

I highly recommend you to get very, very close when using Ringflash. You will be amazed by your photos. This wonderful adores almost touching the object.

What I really enjoy is the Ringflash for double exposure. You can use not only one of its color rings (one yellow, one red, one blue and a with diffusion ring) but more! In this photo I used blue and red.

More double exposure:

Also you can create a color combining its color gels, which fits in a slit over each of its 4 individual flashes. You can combine two colors in the same slit or different ones in each slit.

I love Ringflash because it gives me a lot of opportunities and also because my most liked photo was made with it :).

My Ringflash loves to work together with my Fisheye. They are a gorgeous couple. Their synergy comes alive.

Definitely a must have accessory!
