NYC: Concrete Jungle

Today, I want to show you some pics from our recent trip to New York. These first three were taken with Hipstamatic.

Lens: Roboto Glitter
Film: Pistil

Lens: Lucifer VI
Film: Alfred Infrared

Lens: Roboto Glitter
Film: Pistil

Those are the only Hipstamatic shots I have from the trip. Luckily, I was able to capture several tilt-shift photos of the city using the default iPhone camera and Tilt-Shift Gen.

Taken from the 2nd story of FAO Schwartz.

Lady Liberty

Manhattan Bridge. Why didn't I shoot the Brooklyn Bridge? I have no idea.

Taken from the Empire State Building.

Central Park from the Top of the Rock.

Some random intersection with a lot of taxis.

There aren't a lot of bells and whistles in the app, but it's the best one I've found for creating this effect. There are both free and paid versions available. For 99¢ you can import items from your photo library, and also save your new and improved photos at full resolution. Definitely worth the buck...

843 Graduates

Ever since I was a kid in science class watching videos of flowers bloom, clouds rolling across the sky, or a colony of ants carry food to their mound; I was always fascinated by time lapse videos. Technically, it's a series of still images put together and sped up into video form. Well, now I can make my own time lapse, aka, stop-motion videos with my iPhone.

YouTube Video

App: Stopmotion Recorder
Duration: 7.5 minutes
Frequency: 5 seconds between each shot

Stopmotion Recorder is a solid app with a few shortcomings. The output resolution could be better and the number of frames allowed to be taken per video should be higher. My last gripe is once you process a video, that's it... no take-backs or do-overs. You can't change the settings and then reprocess your movie. Luckily, there's a preview, so make sure you like it before you finalize your video. Complaints aside, I definitely recommend this app.

Welcome to my blog!

I'm glad you stopped by to check out my new blog! This first shot is a self-portrait so you could get to know me. It was taken with Hipstamatic, my favorite photo app. Hipstamatic will be the app used for many photos, but you'll also see tilt-shift, HDR, and panoramic images along with stop-motion, analog, and digital videos.

The App: Hipstamatic
The Lens: Roboto Glitter
The Film: Float
