Hipstamatic have added a few more filter recently. Oooh that’s right I’m talking about an _app_.

The first pair are the nicest; a two for 99cents deal and are connected with the photographer Ben Watts who I’d not heard of before but upon further investigation is an Australian who specialises in fotos of brawny black men at the beach. I had to make do with a nice day in the pre-humid phase as an demonstration.

There was one extra free lens added to the starter pack, named buckhorst. Kind of subtle, which I like.

And I just noticed another. The hipstamatic people must’ve jumped into bed with Nike because these two B&W films (and case) are branded with comet logo. A bit to hard to understand as it doesn’t really sit well with the ‘hipster’ image. Maybe they were desperate for cash, cash, cash! And I have to say I’m just not a fan of black and white. There’s more than enough black, white and grey in the world, and especially in Korea.

One thought on “jangle”

  1. I don’t know nuthin bout no brawny black men***, or about Apps either, but I do know that an orange filter on a SLR will make the grass greener and the sky blue-er. Or one could open the jpg with Microsoft picture manager and go mad with the Effects tool.
    Nothing is just ‘black or white’.
    *** Oh yes I do! – reminds me of travelling to California from melbourne in July with my Scots white body and by the hotel pool a black guy was convulsed with laughter and kept saying “that is the whitest body I have ever seen”. I was happy that i could give him pleasure without effort.
