Hipstamatic point and shoot camera app for iPhone
I have been having some fun with the HIPSTAMATIC camera app for my iPhone. It's a way to take photos that look like they were taken with a small instamatic camera. You can "change" the lens and the film for different photo effects, or just give it a shake and take a chance. You never really know what the results will be, which makes it interesting.
What you will notice is the pictures have a look from another era, kind of like those old pictures in a shoebox in your closet, that fade with time.
Below are some Maui snapshots taken with my iPhone:
Digital photography never looked so analog.... that's their catch phrase.
There's something about the quality of these pictures that is hard to define... is it nostalgia?
The fact that they are so imperfect makes them unique and interesting.
You almost want to pick them up and feel them, turn them over.
And if the $1.99 app isn't enough, you can buy more lenses and film to expand the repertoire and have even more fun! I might just get hooked on this Hipstamatic app.
