My colleague Philip, is a freelance photographer. He likes to shoot pictures and I can say that his skills are improving. Last week he showed me his lomography photos. I thought he bought the lomo camera kekeke….but he told me this can be done with photoshop!! Of course the effect is never the same with a real lomo and a fake lomo effect. But certainly you can make use of this instead of purchasing a real lomo camera which cost you a bomb!!
So what’s lomo? (got this from wikipedia)
Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Accidents such as over-saturated colors, lens artifacts, and exposure defects are rehabilitated to produce swirly, abstract effects — a trait emphasized by practitioners. Others use the technique to document everyday life, because the small camera size and ability to shoot in low light encourages candid photography, photo reportage and photo vérité.
He also gave me a link to look at some of the lomo effects people produce with photoshop…Arghh..I just love photoshop, don’t you?
So here’s my lomography attempt…I would say something different from the usual photo . Nice touch and easy to achieve too hehe..
So anyone wants to try and show us their LOMO picture??
