Anyone who thinks that filtering apps are just ways to let people turn “bad” pictures into nostalgic-tinged snapshots, should take a look at this post by photographer David Norbut. Published on mobile photography blog WeAreJuxt, David describes a photo road trip through Arizona with his iPhone and his Nikon D700. David talks about his discovery process of working with different Hipstamatic film effects and cameras. He talks about finding the right colors, textures, and light sensitivity to capture portraits and landscapes.

I set out knowing already the direction I was attempting to go in. I knew I wanted to shoot Hipstamatic, but I am also aware of its limitations. The greatest and sometimes worst aspect of Hipstamatic is its unpredictability. However, if you use it enough you can start to harness your outcome and take some stunning photos.

The post is well-worth a read, as David discusses the pros and cons of shooting iPhone vs DLSR. It’s a lengthy post, so we won’t go into much more here. Happily, the results of his trip have been published as a Blurb book.

    These shots are adorable. You did a nice job of sequencing the images, laying them out, and providing useful content. Very well done!
