One of the things about the Pop9 that is super cool is the flash that comes with it. Put color gels in front of the flash and you will get your super cool pseudo-colorsplash!

Things you need:

  • Pop9
  • Color gels – use colors that work well at dusk, red and yellow work well against a deep blue sky.
  • Cool subjects – Anything that can fit in one square alone should do the trick for the pattern. I waited until spring and looked for flowers.

How do you do it?

Just go out at dusk. Before you aim at your subject, choose a color gel and put it in front of the flash (be careful not to block the light with your fingers). For these pics, I use a Fuji Superia 400, way expired. Depending on the film, the sky in the background will come dark blue or black but the subject will be illuminated by the color gel and the flash.

Some variations of this theme:

In this pic, I aimed down and the flash painted the flowers and the grass.

In this one the gel covered the lens, not the flash.

The Pop 9 takes nine identical images on one print. Transform your environment into explosions of pattern-repeating pop-art with the Pop 9. See it with the rest of our Multilens cameras here!
