Hipstamatic App


Following Nettie Edwards talk a week or so ago, I downloaded the Hipstmatic App on to my iPhone 12 mini, and set off to try it out – a walk I often do down the bridle paths around Warwic University.

Here’s my first shot:



I really liked this image, but it didn’t do well in Merit 2 DPI. What is wrong with it?



Spotted a nice tulip tin garden today, with some nice side lighting too. In order to get some sharpness throughout, took a number of shots, handheld, each with different focus points. Popped them in Photoshop, auto-align layers, auto-blend layers, and bingo a reasonably sharp picture. Probably should have tried harder, but time was short. Also, watch out for reds – normal histogram showed exposure Ok as did blinkies, but checking red histogram showed over-exposure – which usually results in loss of detail in those areas. So under exposed by a full stop to prevent that, and the pulled it back in PS.
