Hipsta365 2/12/17

Over the last 2 years I have become a regular contributor to a Facebook user-group called Hipsta365. It is a curated site where practitioners of the Hipstamatic app can display their work and participate in a weekly “Combo” challenge. Here is how the leader describes the purpose:

“A weekly Hipstamatic combo will be posted every Saturday…The idea is to have fun and learn about the different equipment, and how well different films and lenses work together in different situations…There’s no pressure in this group, it’s about enjoying taking photos.”

This week the challenge is to pair up the Sugar Film with any lens and see what happens. In the photo below I used the John S lens and Apollo flash, along with a touch of in-app editing, to capture the overnight rain drops on my favorite succulent.


I have gained a lot of knowledge about how to use this app from the other photographers in this group and it has inspired me to try combinations on my own that I otherwise would not have.

    Like the depth of field you got. I no longer get The Hista FB Group post. Or for that matter the Street Photography FB.

      I had a problem like that and had to go into my FB preferences and redo some notifications on the newsgroups.
