Lomography

So there's this FANTASTIC site for all things digital photography. If you ever want to learn anything- go here.

I sat down today to try and figure out how to create a lomographic picture. I've been fascinated by the visual appeal of lomo photographs- but didn't think I could do it on my regular SLR- figured you had to have special film or a special camera. YOU DONT!!!!! (Lomo photography is pretty much the look of old-timey pics. They have darkened edges and higher contrast- they're supposed to look like pictures did back in the day when color first came out.)
so here are my trial runs- before and after. aren't they so cool? I do believe I'll be doing this to most of my pictures from now on... just because i can. lol
