i love this image ... how did you get the Holga effect? #4876618

Ursula I. Abresch October 04, 2007

Thank you.

I have heard of "Holga", I thought it was a camera? I need to look up "Holga effect" :) I imagine you mean the light around the girl, dark edges? I layered two copies of the same image, cut out the light areas (highly feathered selection) on the top image, darkened the top layer (curves), and blended both layers. Sort of like a vignette with irregular shapes. #4881940
