Mags in the mirror

Continuing with the Vancouver/Seattle trip photos… I took this shot of Maggie’s reflection in our hotel room mirror with my iPhone at about 5:00 AM, just before heading out to catch a morning train back to Seattle. I had a feeling the Hipstamatic app would make an interesting image because it gets very painterly under certain light conditions. Fortunately, Maggie, who’s not naturally a “morning person,” was a willing model.

Seemingly random series

I’m a big fan of the Hipstamatic camera app for the iPhone. The app has quite a few film/lens “paks” to choose from, but “Ina’s 69” film and the “John S” lens are my defaults. This combination produces relatively clean images with wildly different colorizing depending on the quality of light. Here are three shots I took during our recent trip to Seattle/Vancouver, and except for desaturating the brownish borders (Ina’s needs a border update), resizing for the blog and adding touch of sharpening, the images are straight from my Hipstamiticized, iPhone 4 camera roll.

Mags and I just got home from a trip to Vancouver, BC and Seattle, WA. During a short Sky Train trip from Vancouver to Burnaby to visit some friends, I grabbed this shot with my iPhone (of all the in-camera reviews I did of the photos I took it was my visceral fave of the trip). I haven’t ported the “real” photos from my G11 and T2i to my computer yet, but this Hipstamatic shot is getting the first slot.
