DRAMATIC LIGHT by nospringchicken

Get a seperate flash and charge it up. Hold it out, above, to the side, bounce it off the ceiling, anywhere, put someting clear and colorful in front or even put some tissue paper or nylons in front to diffuse it. Hopefully you have a fisheye 2 cause its alot easier. Set your shutter setting on B mode, hold the shutter button and fire the flash using the test button (if you have a fisheye 1 try pushing both shutter and test at once but i’m not sure if it will work). The effect will be not your usual flash lit photos and hopefully more dramatic lighting.

It’s true after all that everything looks different at night – when it is illuminated. So the next time you can’t sleep, grab a camera, use some film until you ran out of it and share us your late night excursions here.
