The effect is inspired by photographs taken from an inexpensive Russian camera called the Lomo LC-A. The photos are produced by a color imbalance in the most simple explanation. As previously mentioned this is created by combining high contrast, soft focus, and dark vignettes. It often creates a very surreal, intense, and dreamy feeling so it is no wonder that this effect is a very popular one to try and create.
