Did another batch. This time the theme is on random objects I took pictures of in the past. It seems only a few types of lomo-effects look good on close-up shots of objects. I didn’t spend a whole lot of time experimenting with different settings, but from the ones I tried, it seems neutral and movie are the two best looking ones.
I made a set of samples using every color scheme avaliable in elsamuko’s Lomo script (http://registry.gimp.org/node/7870). Here are a few samples.
Original, Neutral, Movie, Retro B/W
Still using the same GIMP script to generate these photos. I’m trying to go with themes to make things a little more interesting, but I’m still only using existing photos that I have, and not intentionally take photos specifically for making them into lomo-pictures. I still think this is something neat that anyone can do to their photos to give it a unique look. I’ll post a link to the GIMP script if anyone’s interested.

Recently I’ve been organizing a bunch of photos I’ve taken over the years, and thought it would be kinda boring to just post them, and it’s kinda lame to post old photos anyways, so I decided to not do it. But there are a few that looks good, and I thought of putting some cool effects and see how it turns out. Well, a friend of mine told me about lomography and lom cameras. I thought about buying one since it makes me feel “artsy”, but a digital one is bank, and a regular one uses film, which I would rather not use. I tend to shake when I take pictures, and I don’t want to take a bunch of blurry pictures and waste film. It just so happens that there are plenty of tutorials on creating lomo-effects with Photoshop or GIMP. GIMP’s always been my graphic editor of choice, since I’m trying to cut down on the number of pirated software I use. It’s not as powerful as Photoshop and I can see that the tutorials on Photoshop will result in a more “realistic” lomo photo. But whatever. I can live with this.
