What I love about my Colorsplash Flash Chakras Edition is how it’s very FUNctional. Sure, it’s a flash that does everything it’s supposed to — provide that burst of light for a low-light shot or add even more pop to the colors in a well-lit shooting condition. But beyond the functional purpose, what shines through with every shot using the Colorsplash Flash Chakras Edition is its inherently FUN character.

The pigeon, birdpoop, and salmon pink cap (by Staple Design) on the body are attention-seekers and I was immediately drawn to this flash the day I first saw it in Hong Kong. I didn’t really need it — at the time I had an ActionSampler, a Diana F+ with its own flash, and an LC-A+ that didn’t require a flash. but my gosh, the pigeon was just begging to be taken home and given life to, with what were then my very first attempts at film photography. I decided on the spot, I may not need it but I definitely want it.

…and as I opened up the chakras (how prophetic!) and welcomed the wonderful world of color bursts and splashes on my usual subjects (my nephew Miggy and my baby cameras), I discovered how one learns to love what one wants…and one, in fact, begins to need what one loves.

I would like to share with you here the fun that together we’ve experienced and achieved so far, my Colorsplash Chakras Edition and I…
