Default Challenge No 5 - CREATIVE TECHNIQUE - Lomo Effect

This time I do a tutorial I found on the net : Lomo-effect for a photo.
1 Choose your photo and open it in photoshop.
2. Duplicate the image by selecting “Layer” > “Duplicate Layer.”

3. Now, we’ll create the vignette effect. Select the elliptical marquee tool and set a 100px feather
within the top properties bar. Select the central part of image .

4. Now, go to “Select” > “Inverse” to invert the selection.
5.While the selection is still active, press “D” to pick default colors and create a new layer by going to
“Layer” > “New” > “Layer.” Then, fill the selection with black using the paint bucket tool (“G”).
6.Change the blending mode to “Multiply” and adjust its opacity to 40%
This will leave you with a nice vignette with a brighter center.

7.As Lomo images have extremely high contrast, we’ll recreate this aspect using the “Levels” adjustment.
Click on the icon to “Create new fill or adjustment layer” at the bottom of layers panel and choose the “Levels” option.

8.Next, we’ll adjust the color tones of the image. To achieve this, let’s create a curves adjustment layer by clicking once again on the icon to “Create new fill or adjustment layer”. We will modify the RGB channels separately. Select the “Red” channel and adjust the curve to enhance the red tone of the image.

the green

the blue

With your photo the adjustments can be different.
9.Another characteristic of lomo photographs is their distinctive blurry edges.
To craft those edges, we’ll apply the “Iris Blur” filter over the edges.
We need to merge the image to apply this filter.

10. To apply the Iris Blur filter, select this merged layer and go to “Filter” > “Blur” > “Iris Blur”
and adjust the path near the edges and blur them by 5px.

11. We’ll sharpen the image now. Select the newly-merged layer and go to “Filter” > “Sharpen” > “
Unsharp Mask”. Use 80% for Amount, 2px for Radius, and 0 for Threshold here.

12. Next, we’ll enhance the color saturation of the image. Click on the icon to “Create new fill or adjustment layer” and select “Vibrance”. Use +5 for Vibrance and +25 for Saturation.

13. To brighten the image, select the “Levels” adjustment by clicking the icon to “Create new fill or adjustment layer” and dragging the right-hand slider towards the left.

14. To give your image a bluish tone, click on the icon to “Create new fill or adjustment layer and select “
Color Balance”. Now, apply the provided settings for “Midtones”.

15. Now the “Shadows” Color Balance.

16.And the “Highlights” Color Balance.

17. Then change the blending mode of the “Color Balance” layer to “Color”.

18.Lastly, we’ll apply the “High Pass” filter on the image.
Merge all if these layers together by selecting them and pressing Ctrl + “E”.
Duplicate the merged layer and select “Filter” > “Other” > “High Pass”.
Enter 1px for your radius in the high pass window and press “OK”.

19. change the blendingmode of that layer " High Pass" to Overlay


This is the result

This my begin photo



I know it's a lot, but I hope you like it!!!

Make a lay-out with your result and have fun!!!!

Lilly you might not be able to see the lomo effect but it's there. Came across the image by accident after I saw your challenge and had an 'ah ha' moment! Thanks!
