As you well know (unless this is your first time here), I love film photography. I love that it makes me stop and think and wait. It’s taught me patience in the process and trust in myself. It humbles me and, recently, it’s started hurting me. The Mamiya C33 I adore is a heavy beast. And my back… has been hurting because of it. Oh and the fact that I rarely just carry one camera around (my Mamiya doesn’t deserve all the blame). The common number of cameras I carry around is three, minimum. I try to do less but often do more. So I decided it was time to lighten things up for a bit. I decided to rely on the one camera that I always have on me… my iPhone. I upgraded last fall to the 4s primarily because of the camera capabilities (ok, I was intrigued by Siri too).
What ended up happening is that I have become somewhat obsessed with a couple of photo apps on my phone (hipstamatic, vsco cam) and instagram. I am still shooting film but not carrying the cameras around as much or maybe only one. I don’t want to double post my instagram shots so here are some of my outtakes that I shot using hipstamatic only. I really love this app. It is the closest you can get to shooting film digitally cause the process is rather similar but a lot faster and cheaper. Anyway, it’s fun to be excited about this camera. Instagram followers, I hope you aren’t getting tired of me cause I don’t see this obsession ending anytime soon. Here are some of my adventures during the last few weeks:
