That Vintage Feel....

Before Effect/ Original Image.

CinemaScope Effect

Cross Process Effect - a serendipity! It is an effect discovered independently by many photographers often by mistake when processing negatives in wrong chemicals (resulting in an orange base). The effect has been well known since the 60s. Model wearing Sharart Design. (Earring: Pink Opal, Aquamarine & Diamond. Necklace: pink Opal, Aquamarine, Blue chalcedony, Cultured pearls and diamonds.)

1960s Effect
This weekend kinda flew by me although i had a 3 day break. I was calling hotels, searching for makeup artists, florist, photographers etc. K has been looking at car rentals. I realize im so drawn to images that have that vintage feel to them. Reminds me of my grandparent's old pics, they have kept for ages, stained with that old patina. I love it. i love the look, i love the smell. I googled to check out cameras that are capable of creating that old charm and of course, lomo is one of my fav. i have a few lomo cameras but u know it's quite tricky to get those pics to all look good. It takes 10 to get one good shot. I chance upon an amazing site that has all the tools to create that FEEL :Picnik is a great site for lazy people like myself. Love the classic, vintage images:
