We took a trip to the Melbourne Showgrounds to check out the Royal Melbourne Show for the first time in a few years. Since I was last there it has undertaken a complete renovation and the new buildings look great. We arrived at the start and were able to watch some of the judging for “Horses in Action – Light Harness” and “Horses in Action – Tradesman & Delivery”
I forgot to bring my DSLR or compact P&S so had to use my iPhone for photos and decided to use what is becoming my favourite app, Hipstamatic. It emulates an old camera with interchangeable lenses, different film effects (border). This is using the JohnS lens which I quite like the darker patches around the edges with a clear bright colourful centre image. The film in this instance is Kodot Verichrome, again I quite like the kind of frayed edges.
Had a little bit more of a play with the Hipstamatic app on iPhone. I love the retro nature of the pictures. We were in Geelong for a UCI Cycling volunteer briefing, while waiting for my wife to finish her briefing I took a couple of photos trying out the different lenses.
I think my favourite lens is the John S.
I decided to finally download Hipstamatic for the iPhone today, see what it looks like, how the photos come out. I’ve been enjoying seeing similar effects from an Android app that Neil Gaiman has been using. This is my favourite test photo after downloading it. It was taken with the following application settings:Lens: John S
Film: Ina’s 1969
