Hipstamatic Shooting and editing

Hi, Thought I’d post an image taken on my iphone5 using the Hipstamatic app. I’ve mentioned before about hipstamatic, It’s a great analogue effect app with loads of different lens/film combos. You can choose between a number of different flashes as well as alternative cases to stylise to your own tastes. There are literally hundreds of combos and it produces some really cool images. Take a look at some of the Hipstamatic groups on flickr to see what can be achieved. Also check out facebook, Oggl and Instagram for inspiration. Your find me under calmas5 on both oggl and instagram. Here’s the original image….

IMG_3657 I used the Yoona lens and blanko bl with the standard Flash. I housed everything in the full metal camera case….

My first edit was done using the snapseed and film noir apps. Snapseed is my go to editing app (see my earlier post on snapseed). Film noir is a fantastic Black+White editing app that lets you “dial” in effects to give you great control..

IMG_3784 IMG_3783 Heres the final version..

IMG_3681

The next edit was done through snapseed and scratchcam, a great texture app with loads of effects…

IMG_3475 You can also adjust the overall effect on this as well. Here’s the edited version..

IMG_3684 I think I prefer this versions, but who knows I may well change my mind or even re-edit later on..Thanks.

Shooting and editing on the iphone5.

Hi, thought I’d share my latest edition to the Echoes series. This one is titled Leaving and as with a lot of my images it features the backs of people!! I don’t know if thats an issue or I’m scared of shooting people head on but I do like the feeling it gives to my images and to the series in general, that of shades or memories that have been retained by a building or location. This is how I achieved this image starting with the finished image..

IMG_3463

The background image is of a corridor in my son’s college which I’ve used for a few of my creations..

IMG_3469 This was imported into superimpose to be used as the background.

I then imported my foreground image which was taken using the hipstamatic app with the Yoona lens BlankBL4 combo.

IMG_3440 Using the mask tool I carefully erased everything apart from the three figures and their shadows which I positioned and resized using the transform tool over the background..

IMG_3470 IMG_3471 I then used the blending tool to reduce the opacity and merged the two images together..

IMG_3472 I then saved the image to my camera roll and reopened it in scratchcam where I played around with the different textures and effects. I normally try most of the textures to see how the image looks, although sometimes I have a pretty good idea…

IMG_3475 IMG_3473 When I’m happy with the effect I save to my camera roll and import into snapseed to finish off. I normally add a border and try out the different effects and textures before finishing the image and saving it. Here I just used a frame and a slight blur around the edges..

IMG_3463 Here’s two more versions of the same image..

IMG_3464 IMG_3465

That’s it, a fairly straight forward edit and another addition to my Echoes series. Thanks again for looking and feel free to contact me…
