Combo #178 (Matthew Wylie)

Lens:  Bettie XL 
Film:  D-Type Plate 
Flash: off

"In general, I prefer combos that desaturate and / or contribute to a monochromatic, even washed-out overall look. I like the lint-like contamination that Bettie XL produces, especially when paired with the dramatic textures of the D-Type Plate. The contrasts work well for the aesthetic I aim for and the combo is an interesting one for street photography and shadow-play. It might also be a nice go-to for Halloween shots."
Matthew Wylie


Combo #168 (Matthew Wylie)

Lens:  Wonder 
Film:  DreamCanvas 
Flash: off

"I would never have shot with this combo if it were not for the Week 102 Contest in Hipstamatic Sardinia (so thank you Sardinia!). I have always enjoyed the Wonder lens for street photography in particular, but have also found, along with many others in the contest I am sure, that the slightly nuanced saturation of the DreamCanvas film works rather well with the naturally unsaturated, bluish nuances of the lens itself, whether the composition contains earth, rock, sky, or shadow. All images shot in Toronto."
Matthew Wylie


Combo #160 (Kunstvibe - Vanessa Uher)

Lens:  Salvador 84 
Film:  Blanko Freedom13 
Using:  Oggl 

"I'm actually a, somewhat removed, relative of Salvador Dali. My great grandfather left my great grandmother (who was also an artist, an expressionist painter) for the mother of Gala to become her second husband… My father only told me this really important news, when we visited Dali's house in Spain a short time after he died. At the time I was already painting very surrealistic paintings, and was sad that I hadn't found out before Dali died, because I probably could have met him. By the way, I really love double exposures!"
Kunstvibe, Vanessa Uher


Combo #155 (Christine Mignon)

Lens:  Kaimal Mark II 
Film:  DC 
Flash:  Jolly Rainbo 2X 

"Looking for a nice combo for sun and skies I found this one. The flash turns the red-orange tone of Kaimal into dark purple, I fell in love with the dramatic touch. It also turned out to be great for other subjects as well, giving rich colors and a golden atmosphere."
Christine Mignon


Combo #150 (Jade Deakin)

Lens:  Tinto 1884 
Film:  Alfred Infrared 
Flash: off

"I discovered this combo by accident and I had never used Alfred Infrared before, always thinking that images taken with it would be too red. The hues vary between images-reds, pinks, purples, golden yellows, and combined with Tinto 1884, this combo creates an almost ghostly effect which I really like. I also find it’s nice to shoot with at night time as it makes lights glow brilliantly in the darkness."
Jade Deakin


Combo #139 (Annie Helmsworth)

Lens:  Madalena 
Film:  Robusta 
Flash:  RedEye Gel 

"I took on the challenge to shoot a few photos with the São Paulo HipstaPak and RedEye Gel flash. I found that in a dark or shady setting the result was fairly dark with not much definition to the subject. Though they did have a nice muted red tone about them. Bright sunlight and the flash highlighted the purple tones that you see in this combo when used without a flash and gave the subject a more defined result. All in all a fun combo that can give your photos a vintage hip look. "
Annie Helmsworth


Combo #125 (Antony Sirotkin)

Lens:  John S 
Film:  DC 
Flash: off

"John S + DC combo was my first choice when I started to use Hipstamatic. This combo produces high-contrast images, since it enables you to highlight specific details which are less noticeable when you shoot with a standard camera. The result is that these details appear visually on a par with the main objects you are shooting and so enrich the image. I consider this to be a powerful combo for adding some dramatic effect, definition and depth. I deliberately use the John S + DC combo to combine diverse spaces into a new one, which is absolutely unique."
Antony Sirotkin


Combo #124 (Tim Engle)

Lens:  Adler 9009 
Film:  Dylan 
Flash: off

"The Adler 9009 Lens, Dylan Film works so well in natural light! It's soft with just a little lens flare. I love it!"
Tim Engle


Combo #93 (Elena Bouvier)

Lens:  Salvador 84 
Film:  D-Type Plate 
Flash: off

"I had just missed one train home and was confronted with how to spend an hour, cruise social media or be productive? As I am growing increasingly aware of how much time is wasted 'Getting There': to work, to play, to home and to the illusive Next Level, I chose to make creative use of the time. These images were made in a single hour and reflect my visual interest in travel and movement as well as my philosophical desire to be present, to live in the here and now. Salvador 84 is always an exercise in chance, patience and the judicious use of delete. It is also a great lens to transform the ordinary. Combine this with the D-Type Plate and the opportunity to transcend the expected is pushed even further."
Elena Bouvier


Combo #75 (Inkuschka Ma Ria)

Lens:  Wonder 
Film:  Sugar 
Flash:  Jolly Rainbo 2X 

"I love my macro because I live in a town with no big hills, no sea or fantastic buildings... not to forget sunsets. So I have to look for other beautiful things... Small things. I love macro photography, because it's fantastic and surprising to come so near to 'objects' which seem to be 'trivial'... To discover the beauty of them."
Inkuschka Ma Ria
