Number One – Hipstamatic

Hipstamatic is my fav app to shoot. I’m very addicted to Hipstamatic. I love the possibilities of expressions, creations. Each combo allows shooting from a personal interpretation.


Number Two – PhotoToaster

Taken with Hipstamatic and highlighting with PhotoToaster. PhotoToaster is a real editing tool very complete and fully configurable.



Number Three – Glaze

Taken with 645pro, highlighting with Glaze, Decim8 and Blender. I love painting. Glaze is a great app, with beautiful effects. There are pictures I like to interpret as a canvas.



Number Four – Decim8

Very inspired by my trip to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. I let myself be carried away by the flow of creativity. All my creations are made from my own photos.

Decim8 is revolutionary! She just be used at any time during creation. The greater part of my “abstract” are made with Decim8 obtained by superimposing various effects. I want my creations are like me, I need to feel that I control the character of the picture.



Number Five – Snapseed

I remain torn between Snapseed and PhotoToaster. These are two very strong applications rework and very intuitive. For me they are very complementary. I work a lot on intuition, I alternate from one to the other.
