Lomographic-Style Prints


I am so stinkin' proud of myself.

I love love love lomography.  I wish I had a camera and the know-how to shoot cool pictures like those.  But alas, I don't.

However, I DO have an old version of Photoshop and a curious mind that likes to experiment and figure things out.

I found this nifty tutorial on how to make digital photographs look like lomography.  Although I couldn't follow the tutorial exactly since my version of Photoshop is so old, I think I did come up with something pretty cool.  What do you think?  Please leave a comment.  I'd appreciate feedback on this new endeavor.

PS - I just posted prints of this picture for sale in my Etsy shopCheck it out! :)

Awesome! It looks great, I may try it too since I love Lomo's but don't have the money either xD

Ok, let me rephrase....

I wish I had a FILM camera. I have digital. :)

I like the photo a lot hon! I am just learning about HDR photography. Have you looked into it?

My mom is finally convinced to get me a prof. camera for Christmas! *squee!*

I went to the link you shared about lomography. Never really heard of it. I have seen it, but didn't know what the "technical" term for it was.

I am following your blog now :-)
*hugs*

P.S. I may be moving to central PA next month!
