The Flash-Less Way of Shooting Indoor Instants


It used to be that — in order to shoot sharp instant indoors or in dimly-lit situations — you had to use a flash to achieve decent results. At times this can be quite limiting because not everybody likes the look of harsh lighting in their photos — especially if you're trying to capture a certain mood with ambient lighting. But instant photography has come a long way and now instant photographers have the creative advantage to shoot indoors or during nighttime without the need for flash, thanks to the Lomo'Instant Automat.

With the Bulb Mode on and your Lomo'Instant Automat safely secured with atripod or steady surface, you have the creative freedom to enjoy flash-less instant photography. Faces kissed by the afternoon glow, streets lit in neon, or still-life subjects draped by natural sunlight — you can do it all!

On Bulb Mode, you can shoot long exposures of up to 30 seconds, so take a deep breath and let the light sink in! To ensure your shots are sharp (aside from using a tripod), the lens cap also doubles as a remote, so you can shoot long exposures without worrying about accidentally moving your camera. Brilliant, eh?
