Through My Eye, Not Hipstamatic’s

I’m of the firm opinion is that what matters is the artist, not the tool the artist chooses to use, or use incorrectly, or even ignore. Critics have a right to their opinions, but complaining about the tools the artist uses is a weak, meritless criticism.

The Great Hipstamatic

I never owned my own Hipstamatic, but the iPhone app seems like a pretty good simulacrum, even going so far as to force you to use a tiny little viewfinder to frame your shot. the camera takes a second to warm up (well, at least it pretends to be warming up the transistors), also ‘turning on the flash’ takes a few moments. … And since there is no flash on an iPhone, I’m guessing turning on the flash just adds a bit of randomly controlled coloration to the image. changing lens, film, flash is as easy as a swipe of the finger… My other complaint about the application is that the cost doesn’t include some extras like this film, for instance.

Evening rush hour hipstamaticly

Shot with my Hipstamatic for iPhone Lens: John S Film: Kodot Verichrome Flash: Off decluttr there’s a new iPhone phone app called Hipstamatic that’s sweeping through the Flickr community. … Doesn’t seem like it saves high resolution versions though, which is a flaw, imho.

Atget’s Paris

An acquaintance flattered me and compared a photo of mine to Eugène Atget’s work, so I had to learn more. In school, and in my life, I’ve studied the painting masters, visited museums all over North America and Europe, but I haven’t filled in the photography part of my art education as thoroughly, yet.

Head In A Vice – Explored

I took this photo of my stairway late Friday night, decided the photo would look better with more stark, defined lines, so converted it to black and white (via Snapseed and then Hipstamatic, I believe, but perhaps only in Hipstamatic). I realize Flickr’s Explore is a computerized algorithm, yet I still am amused when the attention firehose is pointed in my direction
