Why Hipstamatic?

For me Hipstamatic is the iPhone equivalent of film making’s Dogme 95, the limitations (even if artificial) are the point. You have to be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the virtual film stock and lens, and work with them. each shot takes 10 seconds to develop so you have to choose wisely. No photoshopping afterwards it’s about you, the camera and the subject right now.

So perhaps you could call me a re-modernist, or maybe a post minimalist…
