Wheat – Polaroid Plate #1
Another fetish I’m having at the moment – besides the trashy black & white one – is the Polaroid/old picture effect fetish.
I’m was looking through some of my older photos – many of them are before I went digital – and tried using some Lightroom Polaroid presets (with my own minor adjustments) that I found on the web on them, and I must say that on some of them – photos that I normally would have trashed – it really works out great.
I’m not quiet sure what it is that makes them work, the composition is ok, and of course the look of the effect is really cool, I think the lomo feel the photo gets from the effect is great.
So the formula must be something like: OK composition + a Polaroid effect = a decent photo. And I think it’s best served from an analogue camera.
What do you think?
