Combo #514 (Sabine Gromek)

Lens:  Salvador 84 
Film:  Aristotle 
Flash:  Tasty Pop 
Clarity: 27 • Vibrancy: -80 • Texture: 38


"I have always liked the unexpected outcome of the Salvador lens and being able to make adjustments in Pro Mode makes it even more interesting, especially with the Aristotle film. The color effects appear beautifully. For this series I used only pictures of flowers, some of them taken with a Macro Olloclip."
Sabine Gromek


Combo #523 (Lori Hillsberg)

Lens:  Marshall 
Film:  Bream 
Flash:  Standard (44%) 
Exposure: -0.3 • Clarity: 20


"Looking for a use for the recently released Marshall lens, I paired it with Bream and Standard and was instantly smitten with its quirky charm. We have lovingly named it Tutti Frutti."
Lori Hillsberg


Combo #530 (Nadja Franz)

Lens:  Yoona (55%) 
Film:  Gotland (35%) 
Clarity: 58 • Definition: 37 • Vibrancy: -6 • Temperature: 6580 • Texture: 90 • Film Grain: 30


"As I have been using the square format for ages, I decided to adopt the Germans adage of "everything is new in May", and tried widescreen. While I was at it, I also tried a new Hipstamatic combo. I played around with Hipstamatic 300 and came across this nice retro looking combo using the Yoona lens and the Gotland film. It makes the pictures look like a mixture of old photo prints and old paintings. So, maybe not everything is new in May! "
Nadja Franz


Combo #532 (Polina Sarri)

Lens:  Dale 
Film:  A-Type Plate 
Flash:  Apollo (25%) 
Exposure: -0.4 • Clarity: 10 • Definition: 20 • Highlights: -50 • Shadows: +100 • Vibrancy: +10 • RGB: modified • Temperature: 7500


"On my daily strolls around the city, there are many small and simple things that make me smile and contribute to my sweet disposition. An art installation, a bubble in the sky, a woman with a colourful balloon, graffiti, a couple... the list is endless. While creating a collection of these moments, I ended up with a story made up of pictures with one common theme, optimism! And what would be a better colour to describe that happy feeling but pink! Although it is considered to be a bit childish, it is a colour that makes things look surreal, like in a Wes Anderson movie, while conveying a hint of buoyancy and hope, which we all seem to be seeking nowadays. So I paired the Dale lens, with the A-Type Plate film and the Apollo flash, to create a combo that makes my views of the city and eventually yours, full of dreamy illusory effects."
Polina Sarri


Combo #561 (Kally Klonaris-Smythe)

Lens:  Müller 
Film:  A-Type Plate 
Shadows: +19 • Vibrancy: +100 • RGB: modified


"I stumbled across this combo while editing one of my more minimalistic photos. I was drawn to its simplicity. The colors are limited to only a few, and most of the detail is eliminated. I have found that this combo only works for specific types of photos, but when you find the right one, the effects are pretty cool!"
Kally Klonaris-Smythe
