Thursday, June 30, 2011's the hardest part.

I have really been enjoying the BlacKeys B&W lately.

Rubber balls and danger.

Sometimes there is an air of danger beset upon the Hipstamatic photographer. One of the more dangerous situations occured while taking this photograph. I was accosted by the store clerk who tried to grab my iPhone while informing me that photographs were not allowed in his business. Being that it was a nearly empty run down comic book/video store, I would think he would just be happy having a potential customer.
I dropped the phone into my pocket and laughed it off. Like this vending machine photo was going to be part of a top secret conspiracy to try and steal business secrets from his slowly dying establishment.

This is now the fourth time in the last few months that people have told me "no photographs". For some reason it only makes me want to go back at a later date and start shooting while their backs are turned.
I like to fight dirty.

Lifeguards but bad drivers.

There's nothing like getting the SUV stuck on one of the busiest days of the year.

Color Combo

This is a really great combo if you are looking for bright rich colors in your photo. It works best in a well lit area looking away from the sun. If you point it towards the sun, your subject will turn out black.

The Gallery Exhibition

So last weeked I was able to make it to Atlanta for the opening night festivities for the Hipstographs: Experiments in Hi-Fi Lo-Fi Photography at Gallery M in Atlanta. This gallery showing was probably the largest mobile phone photography exhibition in the U.S. to date. I was really excited about attending this event for a few reasons.
Reason 1: 20 of my Hipstamatic prints were part of the exhibition.
Reason 2: I was excited to see the works of others, and to meet other camera phone addicts.
Reason 3: A road trip is always a postive experience.
Reason 4. I had never spent time in Atlanta

The gallery event was a huge success. So much time and effort was put into it by my friend Christopher, and everyone that attended seemed pleased with the outcome. The only drawback to the night was from Mother Nature. The heat and humidity were pretty extreme.
I left Atlanta a few days later even more inspired.

The photobook has finally arrived.

After spending the last 6 months shooting thousands of Hipstamatic photographs, I finally decided it was time to print some of my favorites. Currently being printed and offering over 150 pages of photos, I'm hoping it will be an enjoyable view for everyone. Click the link for a preview. The Hipstamatic World - The Photobook

The Buckhorst H1 Lens

When working with Hipstamatic photography I find it's easy to get a bit too comfortable with one particular lens. John S is that go to lens for me. There are times the results from the John S are amazing, and there are times when it just doesn't deliver. That's when you know it's time to change it up a bit and that it's time to explore some of the other lesser used lens/film combos.
The Buckhorst is slowly becoming a nice addition to the aresenal when the conditions are right. At first I thought this lens would be rarely used. But then I read that it works well with the woods and wood related items. Recently I ran across this house that offered a nice combination of woods accented by some bamboo fencing. I knew this would be a nice test subject for the Buckhorst.
