Lomo-effect Photos: Objects

November 2, 2010 Leave a comment

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.

Lomo-effect Photos 2

September 16, 2010 2 comments

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.

Lomo-effect Photos

May 3, 2010 2 comments

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.
