Playing with Hipstamatic

Okay so everyone already has Hipstamic (well everyone with an iPhone).

And they’ve played about with it no end. 

And every other picture on Twitter has been taken with the Hipstamatic app.

Why. Well because it creates curiously old looking photographs. Like ones you find a in a dusty box in your Grandma’s attic.

Well sort of because it depends what the photo is of but the look of the photo is pure nostalgia even if its content isn’t.

I kind of like the look so I thought I’d do a collage.


Same shot. Once with each lens and each film that comes with the basic version of the app. There are of course further lens and film options you can buy.

Not sure I’ll be doing that any time soon.

It was fun though. 

Very eggy

I was practising taking photos today and I combined these different eggs with some pink tissue paper to see if it brought out the blue in the Cotswold Legbar eggs. It kind of did but not as well as I hoped. I like the colours though and the different eggs look pretty together.

The brown ones are Burford Browns and the paler smaller ones are bantam eggs. 

I got them from some friends but you can buy eggs like these from Clarence Court although not as a mixed half dozen.

I’m looking forward to doing a comparative tasting.
