I have been having some fun with Hipstamatic for those photos of my kitties. I have been using the Hipstamatic Pinhole filter. Just look at my Zoe looking up at me.
If you don’t know what Hipstamatic is, it is an app that contains filters that approximate popular film and lens or filter types. So if you want a sharp photojournalism black and white image, or one that looks like a faded 1960’s Kodachrome look, or cool fantasy images, you are likely to find a filter that does this in Hipstamatic if you are willing to pay for the newest filters. (I have a bunch of them)
So, here are my kitties using the Pinhole filter in black and white. Take a look at the before and after photos. I think the Pinhole filter looks really interesting.
Don’t these look cool? I love the comparison between the Pinhole image and the original color photo. The distortions of the Pinhole filter force you to look at the dead center of the image. And I think it makes my Raja boy look very handsome.
Here is another pair of photos. Raja is lounging on the pathway.
And this is the original color photo.
Raja can be a real pistol. He is harassing his sister.
And the original.
And the last photo is of Zoe on the deck in hage favorite chair. I like the shadow of a cat, too.
And the original of Zoe in her chair.
I think these are such cool images. The Pinhole filter really focuses on the center of the image and blurs everything else. It’s kind of like watching the Starship Enterprise go into warp drive, or watching a scene from a creepy movie. And I love it that these are my sweet kitties.
