No my picture isn't sliced and diced with scissors, it's sliced and diced with spinners.

So I love the spinner a lot and I love long exposures, color gels, and chopped up images almost as much. Guess what? I combined all my loves into one! This is a simple simple technique that only requires a Colorsplash flash, a spinner, and a room with a light switch. You get the room dark, aim the Spinner at your desired object and hit the flash button on that Colorsplash. The magic happens because of the way you can count the clicks on the spinner though. If you want to have an image with a black stripe between each color stripe then you move the spinner two “clicks” after each flash. If you don’t want black stripes then just move it one “click” between flashes. The color pattern comes from turning the Colorsplash flash to a new color gel setting each time you use it. Its simple and fun and gives you a whole new element to your spinner. You know this tip could have gone into the Spinner manual if LSI had let me be a tester(just saying ;)
