For me, one of the greatest photography techniques is cross processing. It gives the pictures a great retro feeling that is really gorgeous. Cross Processing itself is the procedure of deliberately processing photographic film in a chemical solution intended for a different type of film. Although working with film is much more awesome, one may reach the effect using Photoshop.
The effect was discovered independently by many different photographers often by mistake in the days of C-22 and E-4 . It has been used a lot for fashion advertising and band photography. In more recent years it has become more synonymous with the Lomography movement.
Some time ago I had a tutorial teaching how to reach the effect along with a lomography feel. You may check it out at Cross-Processed Lomo Effect - Photoshop Tutorial. Here, I've selected some totally gorgeous cross processed sun flare pictures, that I bet you'll really enjoy. Please, pay all these guys a visit! They're really good. Hope you all like it! Cheers. ;)
