Retro Camera Incorporates Fun, Excludes Smugness
Many hipsters refuse to learn the same way that most photographers do, about apertures, ISOs, shutter speeds, etc. Instead, they just shoot, and claim that learning the technicalities only slows them down.
I was futzing around with one of my favourite Android apps back during in July, trying to get an interesting shot of one of my favourite beaches. These photos were all taken with Urbian’s Retro Camera, a free Android camera application similar to Hipstamatic for iOS, but without the associated hipster smugness. It’s great fun for nostalgia buffs, photography aficionados, or fans of obsolete technology! That being said, just for the sake of comparison, I took the same shot with each of the camera settings. Enjoy, and let me know which you like best!
