I use it with my LC-A and they make quite a pair, both day and night, indoors and outdoors. And if I get bored with the blue color, I just flip it to the red filter!
The usual situation when you feel the need for a flash is in low light conditions – in the evening or indoors. And why not add reality some color? You can use it the “normal” way, I mean, it flashes when you press the shutter and you have a picture all tainted with the color you choose.
If you are tired of this color, the amazing thing about this flash is that you can flip it and change to the next color.
When you’re doing a long exposure, it will only flash at the end. The result is that the nearest subject to your camera will have a splash of color and the background won’t get (almost) nothing. I really like to use it like that!
By the way, if you are really an amateur like myself, don’t get too excited splashing a white subject – it won’t work the way you imagine.
Because it is a color flash, makes sense to use it in daylight to add some tones to the picture. To me, the best results with this flash are the ones in daylight, at the end of the day or in the shadow, definitely!
After a few pictures with the same colors, patiently take out the filters and switch to the other color filters that come separately in the box. And if you’re not interested in colors, no problem, without the color filter it is just a regular flash.
P.S. – Please notice that the pictures are also cross processed and some color effects are due to this and not from the Colorsplash Flash.
