How does one achieve this soft, low contrast effect characteristic of these photos:
Over expose and shoot into the light should do it.
or a cheap lomo holga
if you love these kind of colours/non-sharpness you'll love these cameras!
Photoshop contrast, saturation and blur.
and while you're at it google "photoshop cross processing"
I can't seem to get that faded look without making it appear as if there is a film of white over the picture. Do I just turn down the contrast?
The last photo is extremely overexposed... to do this on a digital camera you need to shoot properly exposed and then increase the exposure in post-process.
anyone else not like this look? Well, to me it is fine for these images because they have a little more "commercial" look to them... but I have seen portrait photographers apply this technique to children and babies and it just doesn't work... makes me feel like there is a film over my eyes or I am looking through water... makes my eyes wants to water... lololol
