iPhone Hipstamatic on the Weekend

Happy Monday! What better way to start the week than to combine two of my greatest photography loves - Photojojo and my iPhone. If you've followed this blog for a while then you know about my obsession with each of these - and if you're new to Ciao, Chessa! then you'll learn about it sooner or later. I am a Photojoaholic. I'm also an iPhoneaholic. Combine these two loves of mine and WOW-ZA! Holy wonderfulness.

Last week Photojojo wrote a post about my latest iPhone addiction: the
Hipstamatic app. Check out these great tips from Photojojo and take a look at my recent Hipstamtic prints from our trip to East Hampton this weekend - the weather was incredible and we definitely took advantage of it by going to the beachHipstamatic, taking a long walk, having a picnic and watching kites. What about you? Did you enjoy your weekend?

We’ve been addicted to Hipstamatic lately, this iPhone app that lets you take retro-look photos with your future phone. You can change up virtual lenses, flashes, and even films.

Thing is, since each lens, film, and flash produces a different look, it can get overwhelming. You know, like, what does the Jimmy lens look like if you use Pistil film and the Dreampop flash?

6 lenses + 7 flash options + 8 films = 336 different combinations. YIKES!

So we took 336 photos with every possible combination of the Hipstamatic arsenal. (Because we love you.) And we even broken it down into an easy guide to tell you which combos go together. (Ditto.)
