Just joined the group as I want to give this technique a go. Does anyone have any tips or advice?
Also, where can I get hold of some coloured gels to stick over my flash?

Hello 'Mac' - A good place to start is:


Gels are really cheap on ebay. Look for the squares cut for PAR64 Cans.

Nice site you've got there Adam. Very slick.

It'll be fun trying those techniques out, but I suppose I'll have to be patient, as I only use film cameras.

Not so much as trial and error, but trial and................................................................(waits for development).......................error ;-)
Adam Currie 11 years ago
haha, yes.

I have no experience what-soever with film to be honest. You can do the techniques I talk about in the article with a low end digital camera that has a manual mode.

Thanks for the comments about my site, very kind :)

if you're using film, you need to leave the exposure for anything between 3 and 8 times longer than you would with digital. So if the full moons out you'll be shooting shorter exposures than if there is no light at all.

It's called reciprocity failure, google can probably explain it a lot better than me.

Hey guys,

just put a few pics up that I took last night with my new camera, and thought it would be rude not to say hi...

Hi everyone,

Just joined the group - I'm based up in Leeds and get out with the flash and gels when it's not too horrible outside!

I'll hopefully be able to contribute quite regularly to this group, just off to see what you've all been up to :-)
