"Hipstamatic or the feeling of getting back to basics... A lens, a film and you see what comes of it. I am completely addicted to Hipstamatic. I say this because I get true enjoyment out of it... so much so that I have put all my other photo equipment in a cupboard and for the past 2.5 years, I have been making one Hipstamatic picture per day (that's about 850 photos to date).
Having been a self-confessed geek for a long time, I tried just about everything you can imagine in photography. I've used several different types of cameras and films, different approaches to printing and then, I proceeded to try everything that was available for the iPhone. The conclusion is simple: the most important element is your eye and not the material you're using and, frankly, it took me a while to figure that out (experience?). Hipstamatic sums all that up pretty clearly. I will be going back to Africa soon - to Senegal to be precise - where I will be setting up a school using Lubitel cameras... I, myself, am eager to test out Claunch, Robusta, Ina in that environment!"
