This is…

A blog to just play with photographic ideas and enjoy the fact that smartphones mean a lot of people don’t just have a camera in their pocket at all times but a whole photo lab.

The images here are primarily taken using Hipstamatic an app that turns the iPhone into a old style camera. Here all the smart digital manipulation is part of the process of pressing the shutter button, the photographer just chooses the lens and the film to use, and then shoots through an inaccurate viewfinder. The results are fascinating in their uncertainty, and the way that the app requires the sort of experimental joy of discovery that I experienced first using a camera as a kid in the ’70s.
