In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve really taken to my little iPhone camera. I’m using the Hipstamatic App which is modeled after toy film cameras such as the Holga and Diana. All of the treatment is done in-camera.
I love it because all I have to do is shoot. The process involves little post-production and the camera is so simple and, ironically for the technological wonder that is the iPhone, crude. Crude in the sense that there are no manual controls whatsoever while the viewfinder is small and imprecise.
In a way it almost doesn’t feel like photography because it’s so simple. On the other hand, if feels like the most pure form of photography that I can do. The process is so carefree in a way that I almost feel guilty.
This latest round of shots was taken in my neighborhood and in a nearby urban section of town.
