Reteo Style Attempts

Along with everything else, I have been try out the iPod Touch with Hipstamatic app to see if could find a way to achieve a toy camera look. I have been torn between what I have gotten using my M43 camera and the Lensbaby system, and the mobility of the iPod. There are so many choices in camera apps and within processing app that it has taken several months to get there. I think I have found the solution. Below are some earlier attempts using different lens/film combinations, and the final photo which was shot using the Tinto 1884 lens paired with the Black Keys BW film.

Photo Abstraction

I have been reading about and viewing lots of abstract photography of late. There are several people on Flickr that have peaked my interest. The works by Ger Veuger, Carol Murray, and David Strom, are very well done, and always interesting. Here are a few abstracts that were shot using the iPod Touch 5G. The processing was kept really minimal using Snapseed on my iPad. They are a more formal approach that I have been doing of late, but still exciting to see pop up on the camera's LCD. It will be interesting to see if they hold up over time.
