I like taking photos. I wouldn’t call myself a photographer. If I did, I would be pretty amateur. But this current trend toward old school Lomo/Holga/Insta film look and feel is something I can no longer ignore. It is almost like a backlash to the super realistic 3D digital cameras or something. So, I’ve been testing my creativity using some photos I took this weekend and using lighting/color/camera effect filters in a photo editing program.
I’m pretty happy with the results. Here is just one of my creations:
Since almost everything that is electronic now has camera, everyone fancy themselves a photographer. Which is fine. Whether you are an amateur or professional, we all want to capture that moment. Some people have a natural talent for photo composition and framing. Other people not so much. Why do I mention this. Filters. The world of photo editing and filters has turned into kind of an art form. When to use which filter. Holga or Lomo? Lighting effects. The art of applying filters to make an image “pop” or tell more of a story than what is really going on.
Giving photos personality? Hey pretty flower, what is your story??
