I’ve been sort of obsessed with finding ways to incorporate an external camera flash into my iPhone photography. It started while back when I was shooting some event photos and occasionally grabbed a bit of the flash from another persons camera in my shot. The effect, which is often called Flashjacking, was cool but very unpredictable. I started trying to capture the same effect by timing a camera flash with the standard iPhone camera app, but it was too much of a pain to get just right. Then I started trying to recreate the effect with a couple of long exposure iPhone apps with terrible results until I found LightBomber. With the “ambient light amount” set to “high” and the timer set to “3 seconds” you can get fantastic results when shooting with a flash.
The photos on this set where all shot with LightBomber while popping colored flashes using a Lomography ColorSplash flash. Some shots were taken with a stationary camera, others were handheld. Some were in dark spaces (with a constant little candle light) others were taken in normal lighting. Check out the photos below and let me know what you think! Thanks.
