Do you want to turn your Fisheye Flash into a color flash? With this simple tipster you will be able to fill all your photos with color.
Even though the Fisheye has a special charm, one can miss some of the features of it’s big sister, the Fisheye 2. One being able to use an external flash with it’s universal hot-shoe, for example the Colorsplash or the Diana F+ flash (and it’s corresponding color gels)
I love the effect you get when using the color gels and I was not going to give up using them on my Fisheye, but the hassle of holding them up to the flash while taking the shot was too much. All that hassle went away when I came up with this easy but colorful tipster.
What you need to tune up your Fisheye:
- Adhesive tape
- Clear plastic
- Color Gels
To start, cut up a piece of plastic about 1" long and .5" wide, (I used a plastic sleeve to cut up a piece). Once you have the piece of clear plastic tape above and below you camera flash making sure you leave the sides clear so you can slide your color gels in
Done! now all you need to do is put film on your camera and slide in your favorite color gel. Start giving color to your photos! This are some examples of what you can do.
