    Can you point out a specific photo? I see several different types of photos there which could all have been taken using different methods.

    yeh the cross processing but also the really old vintage feel. like in the shot with the girl jumping into the pool on the blow up dolphin. would they shoot that on old film cameras?? etc? I need to be able to use the shots I take in posters and magazine ads. So I need that soft vintage look but when scaled up it wont look crappy??? Sorry im not very good at explaining this.

    I've always wondered how you create vintage style photos too. Hopefully someone can help you (and me!) out.

    Those photos aren't taken, they are made.

    Learn to Photoshop and you can make any photo look good. Learn to shoot, and develop your style, and you will spend less time in Photoshop.

    So do you love to shoot, or edit? Spend more time doing what you love...

    It looks digital to me, and very heavily post-processed by a talented Photoshopper. Looks of fake cross-processed looks. If you'd like to shoot photos like that on film, for some odd reason, any brand of camera could be used....Nikon,Canon,Pentax, Mamiya, Hasselblad, whatever...it'd be nice to have 100 rolls or so of really bad,outdated Ektachrome 100 that you'd let sit on a radiator for a day or two, and then allowed to degenerate for a year, to maybe 18 months past the pull date. No need for cross-processing then--it'll look like crap right out of a standard E-6 processor run!

    If you want to know more about something, Google is your friend. I found this out in about one minute:
