The bulb setting is used in low light situations (indoors without a flash or outside at night)
You do not use a flash when using the bulb setting
Set your camera to bulb by turning the shutter dial to the B setting
Set your camera to a high f-stop for a full depth of field (ex. f22)
Use color film (or DSLR)
