I’ve been playing around with the $1.99 app Hipstamatic. It’s a less intuitive but more customizable Instagram-like tool. I found this guide really helpful.
One of my favorite Hipstamatic facts is that a New York Times photographer used it back in 2010 to capture front-page photos of soldiers in Iraq.
Today I decided to put it to use in my home.
But first, I tweeted about my new-found Hipstamatic interest and got some helpful hints courtesy of @likeacolortv.
@hindamandell Took me forever to find this Hipstamatic feature: Double-tap viewfinder for larger viewfinder! Tap new, larger VF to take pic.— Liz Woolery (@likeacolortv) May 12, 2012
Each shot below has the exact same composition. The only thing that changes is the flash, lens and film.
Jimmy Lens, Kodot XGrizzled Film, Dreampop Flash
Kaimal Mark II Lens, Kodot XGrizzled Film, No Flash
Jimmy Lens, Kodot XGrizzled Film, No Flash,
John S Lens, Kodot Grizzled Film, No Flash
I definitely find myself more partial to the “no flash” shots.
