One of the features in the ‘almost all’ new digital cameras the you can change the White Balance colors Temperature to get colors atmosphere in your shot, In each shot of this image I changed the flash color temperature (White Balance) to get different colors and merged them all in one picture ..
starting from the left..

1. White Balance Red, Blue Coefficients = 485/256, 316/256, 256/256, 256/256
2. White Balance Red, Blue Coefficients = 422/256, 263/256, 256/256, 256/256
3. White Balance Red, Blue Coefficients = 579/256, 341/256, 256/256, 256/256
4. White Balance Red, Blue Coefficients = 411/256, 309/256, 256/256, 256/256

The result..

Minolta Dynax 500si was my first 35mm film SLR camera, I bought it in 2004 from UK with a TAMRON 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, am not using it anymore. In this shot I merge two photos to get this result. and I use my Nikon D90 with SB900 and the lightbox to take the pictures.
