Well, I was moseying around on Ebay looking at lomographic cameras with minimal success (And I’m worried about cost re. film) and then decided to have a poke around to see if there were any digital equivalents. There aren’t – or I didn’t look far enough. Obviously with the likes of Photoshop this is unimportant as you can just about do anything anyway. Why I hadn’t already considered this beats me.
Digital Photography School has a tutorial on turning your digital images into lomographs. I’d seen this months ago but it was nice to find it again.
So I think I might find a Polaroid digital equivalent too, and have a bit of fun. Should I post some of my efforts?
Here are another few roundup threads and tutes on OCAU:Photo. http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=568167&highlight=lomo
I think you can get there without a login.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Lomography.com sells Holgas which are great for film Lomo.
For best results you want to shoot C41 film and then crossprocess with E6 developer.
For 35mm the Diana is a pretty good equivalent but i cant find the website for it. They also have a Holga 35mm version.
Oh yeah, and some people have reported getting the same sort of effects by using a standard wide angle lens on an SLR, and buying a cheap filter to suit. You then smash the glass in the filter, leaving you with just the ring, and replace it with a plastic lens, or perspex sheet.
Mucks up the colours nicely, and also gives a soft vignette.
