Weekend Street Stories – Hipstamatic Monochrome

As a once staunch Blackberry user, if someone had told me I would be street shooting with an iPhone I would have fallen off a chair laughing. Well, I haven’t fallen off my chair, didn’t hit my head either and I am certainly not laughing at the concept anymore. In the short time I have had my iPhone 4, I have amassed quite a collection of street shots that I probably would never have achieved with my Nikon’s and have come to appreciate the spur of the moment shooting the iPhone is affording me. I appreciate the flawed jewels as much as the perfectly sharp captures. It’s nice to break away from the technical proficiency of operating an SLR and just live inside this moment by capturing the story as it happens.
