The Hipstography Awards 2015 – The Ceremony

By on February 9, 2016


Part 1: The Combos of the Year


A new HipstaPak, every single month, means that the number of combinations is growing exponentially. 2015 saw 113 combos published on Hipstography and these were cataloged in 6 different categories. Here are the winners in each of these categories, but… there are, in fact, 7 awards; two of the nominees in the "Street Photography" section managed to score the same number of points from the jury, and almost the same from the public.



Combo #346 (Erode Presso)

Lens:  Salvador 84 
Film:  Uchitel 20 
Using: Oggl


"Imaginary journey between the sea and the mountains in the North of Italy. I have always had a soft spot for the dreamlike quality of the Salvador 84 lens and paired with the Uchitel film it become more pictorial. I personally prefer using Oggl when I’m in Salvador mode as it allows me to better control the randomness of this lens."
Erode Presso




Combo #415 (André Feltes)

Lens:  John S 
Film:  AO BW 
Flash:  Standard 


"This series was made during my daily commutes between the train stations of the metropolitan area of Porto Alegre (Southern Brazil). I like to photograph the humans moving through the exits and entrances of the stations, and its surrounding areas, as well as its architecture.
The combo John S/AO BW is great for those who want a strong and accurate record in black and white, and the light leaks from the shadows, resulting in a chiaroscuro that shows and hides the passage of people and rewrites this architecture.
André Feltes




Combo #362 (Connie Gardner Rosenthal)

Lens:  Jane 
Film:  Blanko Freedom13 
Using: Oggl


"No matter how many combos I try and like, I always find myself going back to Jane and Blanko Freedom13. The images are always clean and crisp, the colors rich and true, creating beautifully balanced images. This combo is perfect for taking into Oggl if I want to try another look as it has no edging or vignettes and responds well to other lens or film changes. India is a warm and colorful place and this combo was perfect for capturing the people and places I visited."
Connie Gardner Rosenthal




Combo #314 (Lee Atwell)

Lens:  G2 
Film:  Rasputin 
Using: Oggl


"This combo has a very strong contrast with a green cast. I found it to be a good combo to use on winter photo adventures to help add golden warmth to cold days. It works well in bright light such as sunny snow scenes and at the magic hour - during the hour before sunset. The combo can also add a dramatic effect to sunsets. The combo was inspired by Alon Goldsmith."
Lee Atwell




Combo #364 (Ankit Girotra)

Lens:  John S 
Film:  Blackeys Extra Fine 
Flash: off


"The combination of John S and Blackeys Extra Fine is most versatile. It captures the aura of the subject in focus, even in the most unfavorable light conditions. The combo creates perfect black and white portraits, landscape shoots and is essential in the kitty of any street photographer. It helps to keep away all the distractions in the photograph and reflects the honest face of any situation. The black and white results with this combo truly capture the grey areas of any mood."
Anki Girotra



Combo #379 (Julia Nathanson)

Lens:  Ruddy 
Film:  Blanko 1 
Flash: off


"Rich, vivid, and intense, this combo is a color-lover’s dream."
Julia Nathanson




Combo #385 (Christine Mignon)

Lens:  G2 
Film:  Daydream 
Using: Oggl


"The pictures were taken on the beautiful island of Santorini, Greece. It was my first visit there, and I was totally impressed by the beauty of the place. The two little towns of Oia and Thira, where the famous white and blue buildings we all know so well from postcards are located, are breathtaking. I tried to find a combo that catches the cristal clear atmosphere of the place. G2 was perfect to show the contrats between the deep blue sky/sea and the shiny white buildings. Daydream added some artificial haze in the sky."
Christine Mignon
