Shoot From the Hip

SQUAT installation opening at the VPL store

The Hipstamatic app is by far my favorite iPhone program, and I've taken such a fancy to the faux-aged digital images that I almost like them better than the photos I take on my much more expensive REAL camera. You can change the film, the lens, and the flash for varying results, but they all have a wonderfully dreamy, washed-out, vintage feel, like they were dug up from your parent's photo albums from the seventies. Here are some of my favorite photos that I shot in the past two months. Do you use Hipstamatic? What are your favorite settings?

Don't know of the application but love what it does to the images! What are they going to come up with next?!

I have Instagram on my iphone, I think it's pretty similar to Hipstamatic, and I most of the time I use it I love the results!
It's like...before you had to open the pic in photoshop and working on it for a while to achieve such a feeling, now all you have to do is to click :)
