We are a week into the new year, what have you created so far?

I don’t about you, but I’m still working on planning some things and goals! Today, however I took a break from the planning and goal setting to go explore one of my fave spots in Seattle, Alki Beach. It’s winter here, so overcast is often the norm, but today the weather gods provided us a bit of fog, and I was loving it!

On my excursion I wanted to play about with Hipstamatic’s most recent HipstaPak. If you use the Hipstamatic app you know that they release new HipstaPak’s from time to time.Not all of them are win’s, but their newest pak: Toronto, has some fun graphical elements.

Here’s a handful of images from today, including the film/lens/flash combinations on each. All of these are SOOC (straight from camera), so I haven’t done any other edits on them.

I’m really digging the Spiro Gel overlay, I sometimes have a lot of fun adding graphical elements to my iPhone photos so this texture is rather interesting. I think there are probably situations where the Cubic gel could be interesting too. There’s also a third flash called Triad Gel.

Unfortunately Hipstamatic is still only available on the iPhone, but if you have an iPhone and like to take photos with it, I’d definitely check it out. I have been using it for more than 5 years now, and it’s still at the top of my list.
