I love being creative with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. Lately, I've been shooting black and white with it. I know some people don't like to shoot with filters, but the way I look at it is I shoot with my big boy camera and studio lights practically every day of the week, so I'm allowed to have fun with my iPhone. Besides, I use the manual version of the app, which lets me control the exposure, the focus, and the zoom. So the only filter that's truly being used is the film strip on the edges. I think all of us need some kind of creative release from our day-jobs.
Here are some shots that I did in Washington DC last week while I was with the Kentucky kids on the Washington Youth Tour.
