When I am on assignment with my Canon 5D Mark II or shooting photographs for myself with my Hasselblad, chances are I am also making photographs with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. It has become my scratch pad for quick, inconspicuous pics.
Like any "toy" camera, there are mysteries and bit of magic that come with each image. It's fun when I am surprised by the outcome. I keep it simple and use the Blanko film and John S lens for most of my shots (that's Hipsta talk, folks). Then I run them through one of the Instagram app filters for the rounded corner look and occasionally a tilt shift. If you prefer black and white, I've been blown away by Hipstamtic's BlacKeys SuperGrain B+W Film.
