When I first started getting interested in the idea of iphoneography, that is, photography taken and edited solely with iPhone apps, the toy camera app Hipstamatic came up A LOT. I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff, so I downloaded Hipstamatic and have bought some of its “lens” and “films”.
I find Hipstamatic frustrating at times. There are so many combinations of lens and films you can use, it’s hard to know which one is the best for the picture you’re trying to take. Either you decide on a combination and the picture doesn’t come out the way you hoped, or you figure out the right combination just in time for the subject of the photo to have moved on.
But once in a while, it just works. Example: see the sunset photo above.
