Mobile Photography Tutorial – Hipstamatic 300 – Revisit your Pictures with an Editor

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photograph tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look at the update to Hipstamatic, Apple’s original App of the Year.  Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Hipstamatic is free (there are in-app purchases) and you can download it here.

“I have a special place in my heart for Hipstamatic. As with many iPhoneographers, Hipstamatic was my gateway into the possibilities for wonderful images created with my iPhone. I selected a lens and a film, and snapped away, leaving hundreds of square images on my Camera Roll. When I posted these images to Facebook, I had several inquiries on how I had made the images. I replied “Hipstamatic”, which led to the next question: “OK, I know you used that app, but how did you MAKE them?” That led me, in November of 2012, to write my first weekly tutorial on Hipstamatic. I haven’t missed a week yet, as creative vistas have opened before me.

Hipstamatic is an idiosyncratic app. One of the things that people loved about it was that you took the picture, but the lens and film, chosen ahead of time, would affect your image in ways you weren’t expecting. This appeals to people who operate on instinct, who like to shoot from the hip. To others, it was a drawback. Some loved being limited to a square image, because it made them think about composing based on that square, rather than counting on a crop in editing. Others wanted to be able to shoot all kinds of aspect ratios.

Hipstamatic has continued on its way for years now, adding new films, lenses and flashes, but sticking to their aesthetic of old film cameras. With film cameras, you were stuck with the film and lens you loaded up when you went out for your shoot – Hipstamatic was the same way (even though it was much simpler to swap out in the middle of a “roll”). Now, with the advent of release 3.0 (or 300, depending on how you look at it), Hipstamatic has changed their game entirely. They have upgraded in three different ways.

– The camera can be switched to “pro mode” which allows for tuning of exposure, focus, white balance, ISO and shutter speed as you capture your image.

– The aspect ratio of the image can be changed from square to rectangular.

– You can edit your photos after capture, changing film, lens, flash and a number of parameters. You can even add that Hipstamatic look to images captured with another camera, or created in art apps like iColorama or Procreate.

My first image shown here is the splash screen, edited in iColorama to make it square, and passed back through Hipstamatic to give it the border of Ina’s 1969 film”.
