I dont know, think thats a snobby view.
For 99% of people photography is fun and many dont have the imagination to no what to do. If they have fun and makes people happy im all for it.
Then a snob I am.
Or not really, it's not about "i'm a photographer and you're not", because hell, i'm not a photographer either. It's more about that they think the effect is cool, fine, but they're missing out on the fun of shooting film.
It's like those guitar pedals that you can buy with COSM or whatever it's called. "emulate the sound of a valve amp with digital electronics". I guess I'm missing the point, why not just buy a valve amp if it's so good. most of the time they're cheaper than the latest guitar pedal anyway.
(just like a lomo and a roll of film processed is not much more than a good dinner, and a cameraphone is what, a few weeks' wages?)
Anyway, speaking of crossprocessing, here's something I got the other day. EOS3 and Shorty mc Forty, with expired (on purpose, left it near the heater for a while) Superia 800, normally it comes out all yellow negatives. But on a whim i told the developer to do it as E6 slide film. I was a bit disappointed, they were nearly black. or very dark blue, being the opposite of yellow. But i scanned the crap out of it with the whitepoint as low as I could, did a few iterations of contrast curves, and I dunno, I kinda like it...
