I published my first blog post 5 years ago today. This is post #320. Not bad! Keeping the content simple helps. Keeping busy with camera and computer helps.
Lately I’ve been playing with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. Speaking of simple, what a wonderful way to make images that look like they came from a cheap, plastic, 1960s film camera! That’s not entirely sarcasm—it’s taken me some time to get on board with this funky retro aesthetic, but now that I’m doing it, I’m warming up to it.
Lens: “John S.” Film: “Claunch 72 Monochrome.” And, well, I cheated just a little, too: a touch of Silver Efex Pro in Photoshop to recover some highlight detail.
Location: Arboretum at the University of California in Davis.
