First and foremost Lo-Fi Photo Fun is about getting creative with film photography. While Brinkhorst did state in the introduction that many techniques can be applied to digital photography as well, most of these results would have to be achieved in post-processing or through digital photo manipulation.
Initially the connection between this photo idea book and the blog, A Beautiful Mess didn’t cross my mind when I borrowed this book. Only at home when I took another look at the cover did I realize that the lovely bloggers Elsie and Emma wrote A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book. While I’m not such a regular reader of their blog, I adore the bright colours and photos whenever I do peruse their posts.
Recently I found myself at one of the newly opened local libraries; specifically the one I dubbed the hipster library. Since a lot of the books on the shelves were new, I took it upon myself to check out all the photography books that caught my fancy. One of those books was Shooting Yourself.
