Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV.
I’m going to show you how to quickly create the look of vintage lomographs from a normal
photos. Lomographs typically have high-contrast and unusual saturation and color. This look
is the result of a technique in photographic processing in which film that’s intended for
slide chemistry is processed in photographic negative chemistry and vice versa. Open a
photo you’d like to use for this project. I downloaded this one from Shutterstock. Before
we begin, you should know that some of the filters used in this tutorial were first introduced
in CS6. There are work-arounds for earlier versions of Photoshop, however, to save time,
I won’t be going over them in this video. To ensure that the settings will be applied
correctly to your image, check its resolution by going to Image and Image Size. Make its
resolution: 150 pixels per inch. We’ll convert our image into a Smart Object, so we can modify
it non-destructively, as well as adjust the effects that we’ll be adding to it. Click
the icon at the upper, right of the Layers panel and click “Convert to Smart Object”.
Go to Filter and Lens Correction. Click the “Custom” tab and drag the Vignette slider
all the way to the left. Then, click OK. Go back to Filter, Blur Gallery and “Iris Blur”.
To adjust the size of the blur, place your cursor on the ring and drag the ring out almost
to the edges of your image. To adjust the amount of blur, drag the blur slider or type
in an amount. I’ll type in 5 pixels.Keep in mind, since every photo has its own unique
characteristics, you may want to adjust the setting amounts throughout this video to tailor
it to your photo. To accept the Iris Blur. click OK at the top. Go back to Filter, Sharpen
and Unsharp Mask. Make the Amount: 80%, the Radius: 2 pixels and the Threshold: 0 levels.
Then, click OK. This adds contrast to all the edges. Click the Adjustment layer icon
and click “Color Lookup”. Open the “Load 3D LUT” fly-out list and click “filmstock_50.3dl”.
the Adjustment layer icon again and this time, click “Photo Filter”. I’ll click “Cooling
Filter (82)”, however, feel free to try different photo filters. Next, we’ll add a few light
leaks. Click the New Layer icon to make a new layer. Change its Blend Mode to Linear
Dodge. Open your Brush Tool and Brush Picker. We’ll take care of the size in a moment. Make
its Hardness: 0% and its Opacity 40%. Click the foreground color and pick a bright red.
Then, click OK. To make your brush bigger or smaller, press the right or left bracket
key on your keyboard. I’ll make its size: 600 pixels. Click one or twice on areas of
your image. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV. Thanks for watching!
