Favorite Combo:  John S  +  AO BW 
Favorite Lens:  Madalena 
Favorite Film:  Blanko 1 
Favorite Flash:  Triple Crown 

"I love black-and-white photography. B/W brings the best out of the portrayed objects simply through reducing to the max. There are no colors to distract while the structures are likewise intensified and accentuated. Thanks to the strong vignette of the John S Lens and the granulated darkness of the BlacKeys Supergrain Film this combo is highly recommendable for pictures with their object in the center and which aim for a dramatic look. Since the combo does not leave any wishes unfulfilled already I prefer to use it in the Classic Mode."
Sebastian Kroll



From David Loftus

To Sabine Gromek for her combo #514


Concerning her series: "Special Award to Sabine Gromek, for an amazing body of Hipstamatic over the years, and for bending and blurring all the rules, always beautiful and visually challenging."
David Loftus


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
