Concerning Markus Andersen's combo: "Overall, extremely powerful set of images entered by everyone. Truly exceptional, which made all of my choices particularly difficult. Of them all, the one I picked as a winner or my number one choice is particularly outstanding for a few reasons. First, let me say that I was very inspired by the set of images, so much so that I was ready to run out and shoot some images myself. The sense of composition the light play and layering are some of the most sophisticated in this category and in my opinion deserve recognition. Powerful images that move well beyond the "snapshot" and into a timeless realm. Masterful, Well seen and well presented."


Combo #185 (Markus Andersen)

Lens:  John S 
Film:  AO DLX 
Flash: off

"My 'go to' Hipstamatic film is AO DLX, the Nike film. It's an awesome combination of grit/dust plus has a very interesting film like grain structure. AO DLX emulates the look of a black & white film print closer than any other Hipstamatic black & white film -  it has a rough, imperfect aesthetic - which I really like. The John S lens compliments the AO DLX Nike film, with punchy contrast & some interesting textures."

    Wow – what a great treat – reviewing these portfolios and images. I am inspired to experiment more with Hipsta – I appreciate the purity and experimental philosophy that is Hipsta’s foundation. Hipsta seems to demand a thorough grounding in composition while challenging the user with becoming knowledgeable of the myriad combinations and investigating “what works with what”….kudos to all the artists and jury.
