As stated in the Golden Rule #5: “Get as close as possible.” This rule is printed on the Ringflash, so you can bare in mind one of he most important aims of Lomography. Having 4 single flash elements instead of a single and too powerful light, the Ringflash can distribute light in a very comfortable and soft way, even if your subject is really near to your lens. At the beginning, the Ringflash was designed for close-ups and macro images, because a regular flashes make undesired shadows on the subject when you’re very near to it. With the Ringflash you’ll shoot pictures without this directional shadows, and you could go as close as you like, because it has 4 power-reduced lights.

It’s perfectly suited to work with a huge range of Lomography cameras: the Fisheye, Fisheye 2, LC-A, LC-A+, many Holgas, Diana F+, and Diana Mini.

The Ringflash is amazing, but it has a little issue with the LC-A and the LC-A+: you can’t watch through the viewfinder when the flash is mounted on the camera. So, you won’t be able to understand exactly what you are shooting (or not shooting). This happens because the viewfinder is covered by the structure of the flash, so you are not able to see what’s inside the frame. The real amazing feature is that you have the “surprise!” effect, when you use this kind of flash. Try it during a huge party and you will discover how cool can it be to randomly shoot people who are crazily dancing. Maybe subjects will be out of frame or cut, but this will add a great unexpected soul to your picture: your friends will be stunned.
