Cross-Processing

Cross-processing is generally a photography technique where you shoot with slide film and develop it as regular film. The end result is weird, off-the-wall colors and interesting saturation.

Now with digital photography, it’s a different process. I “cross-processed” this photo in Photoshop CS using the curves tool. Well, actually it was a custom action that someone wrote for free download. The result is above for you to see.

This effect is also prevalent in an off-shoot of photography called lomography. Lomography gets its name from the Russian Lomo cameras. These cameras were notorious for producing wacky colors like the photo above. Though they are not Russian (rather Chinese), Holga cameras are included in this branch of photography.
