My Girls - Lomo'd

By Bee76
These are the three important women in my life.

Portaiture is not my thing really but I've been messing around in Photoshop and decided to show my beautiful girlies off. I was looking through some old photo's and found some decidedly lomo-esque shots of me as a snotty kid so thought I'd have a crack at it myself.

I'll definitely have the camera out in May when I visit Anglesey for my honeymoon and may do some arty wedding dress shots of my wife to be.... If I can somehow ignite some creative braincells Wink

I essentially followed a standard process including:
- bumping up yellow in the highlights and green in the shadows,
- free transform to add slight ghosting
- Slight curves adjustments in all channels and extra in the red
- Addition of a rust texture with opacity quite low in soft light blend mode to creat noise and texture.

Note: I'm just uploading this for the processing feedback as I know that the 'lomo' effect is a required taste and I may have over-done it on this but I like it. Comments on what to adjust in the processing would be appreciated as I like this effect.

You have a lovely family but I'm not a lover of this type of pic so it's better if I don't critic anything.

Family shots are difficult, and I fear I do not like the Lomo effect - at all. That is personal, but I really cannot see the point of moving technically backwards.

Sorry, but we spend fortunes to get quality. I thought this was a poorly scanned colour slide. No, prefer good modern high quality.
