Do you know what's funner than taking portrait photographs with a DSLR? Taking them with the iPhone using Hipstamatic ($1.99)!
What I enjoy about Hipstamatic is the fact you are able to experiment with lens and film selection on the fly. Once you have found a combination you like, you can save it to your favorites.
I've been using Hipstamatic since it was introduced in the App Store and I'm still experimenting with the lens and film selection. My favorites list is long but I save each favorite with the purpose I primarily use it for, which helps me find the selection faster depending on my needs.
Be aware that to have a vast selection of lenses and films to choose from you will have to make an investment on all of the different paks. Here are a few examples:
In the above image I used the Cadet Blue Gel as for my flash. I wanted to really achieve a sharper image in the center since the room was l little dark, so I stabilized my iPhone 5S on the table and snapped at the right time.
I usually prefer not to use flash but you can achieve some very interesting exposures depending on the flash, lens and film combination.
Try some of these combinations out and submit your best image to me for inclusion in my reader showcase.
Cheers, and please share!
