San Francisco analogue shooter and Lomography intern Elena Kulikova is no stranger to special effects; She’s got great albums dedicated to DIY effects including lens flares, light leaks, kaleidoscopes, prisms and more.

She also has a pair of 3D Fireworks Glasses that she loves. When worn, these glasses create multi-colored reflective bursts from even the faintest of light sources. For photographic purposes, they can even be used by pointing the camera at the sun or other bright & shiny objects. Once the film is developed, starbursts of rainbow fireworks will fill your photographs.

There’s no stopping there of course, you can bring the magic into your nightlife too. Try this on the 4th of July: Just place the sparkly 3D fireworks glasses in front of your lens, point your camera towards the lights in the sky, then release the shutter! lens All cameras are eligible to participate and will bring extra sparkly fun to an already colorful fireworks show. The Instax adapters for the Diana F+ and LC-A+ will, of course, may be be the most gratifying and can bring the fastest results!!!

Order yours immediately and give them a shot before the show on the 4th! Have fun and Lomo on!

    That's funny. I had some of these same types of glassess (hearts and stars) and tried the same thing last Christmas, using the Christmas tree lights. I haven't posted the photos, but this has inspired me to consider posting them. Thank you.
