Love Expensive Film Effects but Can't Afford the Film? No Problem.

Take a pair of sunglasses, put them in front of your cameras lens, and shoot. The effects are unique and give you the more expensive film look with regular bargain bin finds.

I love how the more expensive Lomography film turns out but for a girl on a budget, I can’t always afford it. On a whim I decided to throw my cheap sunglasses in front of my Lomo La Sardina and I am in love with the final product.

Here are a few pictures from Big Pine Key, Florida USA.

Experiment with different colored sunglasses for completely different variegated filter effects!
Lomo on.
