Hipstamatic

One of my favourite Iphone apps of all time is the Hipstamatic. I had it long before Instagram came out. 

I like it for it's unpredictability. Sometimes the framing is nothing like you expect from how you set it up at the beginning of the shot. I like to put it on random as I have five or 6 different virtual lenses, then I get surprises! My favourite is the Roboto Glitter Lens but you can also change the flash and the film settings, so things never come out quite the same. It doesn't immediately show you your photo after you've taken it. Treat it like a film camera, snap away, then check the pictures after! Much more fun! 

Here are some that I've taken in the last couple of weeks. I've had some of my favourite subjects to shoot, so I hope you enjoy them! 

Get the app and have a go! Click on any images in my blog to make them bigger. 



Rathbone Place, London

Stanmore Hill, North West London, one of my favourite views ever. You can't see so well here, but on a clear day, you can see the BT tower, the wheel is to the right of it and the Shard on the left, now dominates above all of them! To the right, out of shot, is a very clear view of Wembley stadium.

Hope you enjoyed! I love photography, but I'm not that good at it, so this app makes me feel a bit special! 

Also, let me know what you think of my blog, I haven't had any comments yet!
