I myself rarely shoot nowadays. Mostly guiding students to shoot when they go out for various activities.
I am considered a "part-time" CCA photography guide?
Anyway, I've noticed the influenced of Lomography among the youth when they start photography, in recent months.
There are something which I have noticed about the youths (sec sch students) and I have trouble telling them that they should not start photography this way.
1. They like to have flare in the photos.
2. They like to shoot with tilted angles in most of their photos.
3. They like softness in many of their photos (for dreamy effect).
4. They also like to use tilt-shift effect.
Any senior bros here, can help me with something that I don't know how to explain to them that such "special effects" may be distracting for viewers??
They all think it is nice and it creates "special effect" when they don't even want to get basic composition first, following the rules of thirds/framing.
Some of them don't even get exposure correct and they want to think of shooting in "Lomo style"..
