On the Fly with Hipstamatc ~ Union Station ~ Glaze


"Going Home"     Captured: Hipstamatic: Jane Lens, Ina's 1969 film Processed: Snapseed, Glaze
Yesterday I led an iPhone field workshop for Capital Photography Center in Union Station, Washington, DC. I had a great group of participants some of whom were already very talented photographers. During the shoot, I used Hipstamatic to capture images. "Hipsta" is great for capturing images on the fly of people. The feature in Hipstamatic that makes it so good for me, is the large screen shutter option. I like making the viewfinder screen large by double tapping on it when it is small. Then I walk around with Hipsta ready to fire by just touching the large screen.
My next all day iPhone photography processing workshop will be November 24, in the Baltimore DC Metro area, sponsored by Capital Photography Center...so if you are interested click here for more information.
I enjoy catching people doing what they do....moving through life. When I find an interesting composition with great light light as in the opening image just outside of Union Station, I will position myself and wait for just the right moment as I did in the opening image. Other times I am walking and moving shooting from the hip as I did when I captured "On the Move" below and "Morning News."
Glaze was my choice for processing. I really enjoyed processing and abstracting these images into colors, shapes, forms and textures, less literal than the actual image...but visually interesting, using the medium of pixels in digital photography as a starting point. If I painted with oils or acrylics, this would be the way I would paint! Lots of layers of texture and color!
