Photoshop Lomo effect

After reading Kottke’s Lomo effect post, I had to try this out myself. Click the image on the right for a larger version. I didn’t bother with a “before and after”, but I will tell you, this short tutorial on how you can spice up your potos in Photoshop is quick, easy and well worth it.

This particular photo is of a creepy cemetary in downtown Salem from a few weeks back. A few historical figures are buried here, as well as a memorial for the victims of the Salem witch trials of 1692.

In other news, I’ve started painting our house — or rather the entire downstairs of our condo. I estimate that I will be finished with the trim in approximately 46 months.

    Sorry, Dan, but there’s no longer a photo on the right of this entry. Can you have a look at it?

  2. I ‘archived’ the whole tutorial on my blog as the original site seems to be down.
    I thought it was a great tutorial and it would be a shame for it to disappear.
    you can find it at:
    Yeah I don’t see the cemetary photo either?? :/
