Do you have a trained eye for analogue? Take this test and find out!
As I was browsing through photos on the Lomography website, I realized that some photos seemed to scream “analogue” while others were slightly more ambiguous. I don’t feel as though I always can tell the difference between a digital and analogue photo at first glance. Sure, there are some of the obvious telltale signs – light leaks, vignetting, dust or scratches on the film, but it made me wonder…how many people in the lomo community can tell the difference between digital and analogue?
