'70 Chevy by bluestone78 '70 Chevy by bluestone78
This photo is the result of one of my favorite techniques, which involves making a digital photo look like it came from a Lomo camera. Some more information about the Lomo camera and Lomography can be found here: [link] The photo I used is a stock photo and the original can be found here: [link] The tutorial I used to create this effect is very simple, well written and easy to follow, and can be found here: [link]

From the tutorial: " Another key to a Lomo picture is the color contrast and saturation. This occurs because people with real Lomos use color slide film and cross-process the film in C41 chemicals. For those that don't know what cross-processing is, it's when you develop film in a chemical other then what it was made for. Standard 35mm film is usually processed in C41 chemicals and Color Slide film is usually processed in E6 chemicals. Interesting results happen when you mix and match.

Typically, Lomo owners will take color slide film (E6) and have it processed as standard 35mm film (C41). This results in over saturation of colors and at times some freaky results. All of which make Lomo as special as they are."
