I posted my last Hipstamatic August photo to tumblr this evening. I enjoyed it. I started to get the hang of Hipstamatic as the month went on and I think my pictures got better. I'll keep that tumblr blog going to post the occasional Hipstamatic photo. An acquaintance, who is a self described photography snob, feels that the Hipstamatic app is just a way to make a crappy photo look okay. I can see what she is saying, it is a very forgiving method of photography but I think Hipstamatic is fun. For those of us who do not have the technical skills to add textures and interesting edits to our pictures, Hipstamatic is a great tool. And besides, I think the pictures can look really cool. And, there again, for those of us who lack that attribute this is an easy peasey way to approximate cool. I'll take that.
What do you think - Hipstamatic cool and fun or gimmicky and lazy?
