iPhoneography Monday: Animals (Fun with Finn)

Well, at least one of us was having fun… This was my first day experimenting with Hipstamatic’s shake-it-to-randomize feature and Finn was being a good sport but really all he wanted to do was sleep.

Both images were taken with my iPhone 6 in Hipstamatic using Bettie XL and Big Up.  Posted as part of Lens and Pen by Sally’s Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge:  Challenger’s Choice (Animals).

    1. You’re right, Angeline. the next couple of photos on my roll show him edgeing closer and closer to the ground until he’s finally curled up waiting for me to move on… I finally left him alone. 🙂


  1. Adore your images for several reasons. Each one adds a variation about his personality. His patience is evident, and so is his irritation (if I can impose that upon him). He looks tolerate of a human’s interference win his day. Very telling. Your selection from Hipstamatic sets the mood too. I haven’t tried that shake-it aspect of the app, will have to get it. Happy Photo Challenge.


    1. Thanks so much for your nice comments, Sally. You’ve caught Finn’s mood perfectly – patient (with me) and irritated but don’t worry, I didn’t keep him this way for long. 🙂 If you have Hipstamatic on your phone you can activate the shake-it feature from your settings menu just scroll down until you see Hipstamatic, click on the arrow and turn on the option.


  2. After reading the post title, and seeing the look on Finn’s face, I’m sure glad you clarified who was having the fun, Lisa. I find it interesting that photo effects have become what I use to see as a not so great image or an old faded picture. I guess it could be an considered a Picasso effect? Definitely fun to experiment. My only problem with effects on my camera is getting it back to the “normal” settings.


    1. I’ve made that mistake a time or two, Patrick. 🙂 It’s interesting to note that many digital processing apps are designed to mimic “old” film results. Maybe for the generation that has known only digital? It’s fun to play around though and not be committed to one image like we were when we only had one chance to get it right.

      1. I would have to agree. Now we don’t have the cost of film and processing (and waiting) to see the result. If one was really into photography, the home dark room and assorted equipment and chemicals. The digital camera made photography affordable for just about everyone. Change for the better. 🙂
