Lo-fi photography (lo-fi meaning 'low-fidelity,' referring to "any process which fails to achieve the accuracy and 'transparency'"[1] ) refers to unconventional photographic practices, chosen for aesthetics, which to give an impression of low quality. Popular techniques include the use of toy cameras or pinhole cameras, for their distinctive stylistic effects. It can be considered a reaction to the perceived ease of creating technically perfect photos in the digital age. Some emphasize a return to film, while others use digital technology to accomplish the same effects. "[2]
