Hipsta Labatique 73, the Olloclip and SimplyHDR


Often I try to shoot with just one app when on location. This gives me the opportunity to create a series of images with similar looks. Then I process with the same apps. This group of images was shot at the Lanaconing Silk Mill with the Olloclip for the Fish eye looks and Hipsta set to Labatique 73 lens a modern twist on Calotype styling of 1873 and Kodot XGrizzled film. When shooting with Hipsta, I usually make three or four shots of the same scene as the unique features of Hipsta will place light and dark areas in each image in slightly different ways. This will give me a choice of images, then I can decide which light enhancement I like best. The Olloclip adds an interesting distortion but looses sharpness in the image to a degree, and more so on the edges of the image, but its a look! The turn of the century silk mill is dark and gritty. I chose SimplyHDR as the processing app to add even more grit and pop some dark areas. Because the mill is so dark the iPhone actually added a lot of noise into the image as well. Then I finished off the images with a consistent frame choice from Crop'n'Frame
This image was processed with PhotoCopier and I chose the Photo style menu and applied a tone. This is the only image in this series I processed in that manner. Notice the tone of the white frame is different from the other images in this series.
