First, there was High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography:
Next came fake Lomography:
Then came fake Tilt-Shift:
So here’s my attempt to combine all three of the popular Flickr fads. The following image was taken with a Nikon D50 SLR with white balance bracketing, processed through Photomatix for HDR and tone-mapping, then processed through Photoshop, first applying fake tilt-shift, then applying fake lomography. I have entitled it "Photoshop Overkill."
And now I’ve stumbled onto a group that mimics the effects of the Holga camera using Photoshop. The image below by Flickr photog conceptDawg shows the original on the left, and the "holgaized" image on the right.
I can’t help but think of the old credit card commercials:
- Nikon DSLR – $600
- Adobe Photoshop – $800
- Computer system – $1100
- Using expensive digital imaging to fake photos taken with a $10 toy camera – Priceless!
