Photoshop Tutorial: Faux Lomo Effect

Here’s my regular caveat, everything I know I learned through trial and error. I’m sure there are other ways to do this but this is how I prefer to do it. I didn’t give any values since the outcome of this depends on what your starting image looks like and what you want the final image to be. Before I start with any shoot or with processing any images I always already know how I want the end product to look like. From there I play until I get the look I had in mind.

Carla, one of my readers, left a comment asking for how to do something similar to this. As it turned out this was also the effect we wanted to the next bikini shoot for WAGW. I decided to wait till after the shoot to use the photos I took then to make this tutorial. Two birds, one stone. Enjoy x

p.s. Ugh, my voice.

p.p.s. If you didn’t that was completely lame and want more of this type of thing, let me know.

p.p.p.s. Photos from WAGW‘s bikini shoot are looking hot! Will be sharing those soon!

p.p.p.p.s. Don’t throw stones at birds, it’s not nice.
