LOMO effect: distortion at the edges, twisted colours and high contrast
LOMO is short for LOMOgraphy, a photo fad that began in1990s based on a low-tech Russian camera (LOMO Kompakt Automat) just right for taking a playful, be-fast-and-don't-think snapshot. I'm sure most of you remember the Bobby McFerrin song "Don't Worry, Be Happy" - the perfect attitude for snapping with a LOMO camera.
Well, I don't have a LOMO Kompakt Automat camera, but I did experiment in Photoshop Elements to simulate the effect.
Above you can see the photo I started with. And if you go HERE you can learn how I played with it.
And here's another photo altered in Photoshop.
