My friend Erica, with the Hipstamatic Tintype SnapPak. Love.

One of the iPhone shots from the photo shoot I did over the weekend. Once I finish editing the other photos, I will post a few of my favorites 🙂 The title of this post refers to the Hipstamatic lens/film combo. It’s the best they’ve released to date, part of the Tintype SnapPak. I don’t use it all the time, mostly because I love color, and I usually want more of the photo in focus. However, this one is AMAZING for portraits, since it can recognize faces and will brighten the eyes if it’s closer up. It also is lovely for some other random shots that don’t contain people.

I am making my foray into portrait photography.  I haven’t really ever been able to do it, because camera phones don’t do people much justice, and neither did the old lens on my “real camera”.  Now, however, I have the potential to take decent photos of people, so I am practicing.  This shoot was an impromptu one, dictated by the conditions of: sunshine, my favorite wall in Portland, and my friend just got a new awesome sweater thing.  I have girlfriends that have previously expressed desire to do photo shoots before, so I have a few planned photo shoots coming up too.  I don’t know how to pose people, which I gave them that disclaimer, so we’ll see how it goes! 🙂
