Now, some of you will know that I started my career (and, indeed, childhood) as a photographer. In fact, www.jacklowe.com (a site holding some of my hero images from the turn of the century) still breathes away quietly in the background and I occasionally sell editioned prints of my work. One day I’ll take up photography again but as a hobby next time, as it was when I was a child.
My life is so full here in the studio these days that I rarely get the chance to make my own photographic works so, if I do, it needs to be easy. I’m not a huge ‘app fanatic’ but a few days ago I stumbled across the iPhone app, Hipstamatic, in an effort to improve my camera experience on said device. What a buzz! It has been so much fun, tapping right back into emotions generated from those early photographic forays.
Anyway, that’s all. I just thought I would share this purely to spread the joy—it’s not every day one gets to acquire a new camera for £1.19! I don’t have any affiliations with the Hipstamatic app creators, by the way, though I wish I had.
