I Love My Hipstamatic for iPhone App!

Magnolia on stairs, using Hipstmatic

We have a digital camera we love, but I have to say, now that I have an iPhone (how did I live without one before?), I use it ALL the time to snap pictures of the kids. Here’s a little app that makes it even more fun: Hipstamatic.

Gotta give a shout-out to two parties that tipped me off on this one — first, my friend Katherine, who I noticed was posting these fun, retro-looking shots on Facebook and, second, to the uber-cool moms at Cool Mom Picks.

Hipstamatic is a photography app that uses a filter to make your pictures look like they were taken with one of those old plastic toy cameras — shots are clear, surprising, and vividly colorful. Choose your lens, film, and flash and mix them up for different effects.

Purchase Hipstamatic at the iTunes store. It’s $1.99; extra lenses and flashes available for a bit more if you want additional options to play around with.

Happy shooting!

    Is that Colson’s Patisserie I see, with Chris and the kiddies?

    Ah, right you are, Alba! Good Brooklyn spot-spotting! Totally jealous of your nomadic existence over there, btw, and love seeing your FB updates — you must tell me how you manage it sometime! Maybe we’ll take the kids on a year around the world…. Well, fingers crossed — maybe one day….🙂
