Hipstamatic: too hip for photojournalism? – Correspondent


Hipstamatic: too hip for photojournalism? – Correspondent.

Patrick did what he could, and then he switched to ‘Plan B’.

“My girlfriend gave me an iPhone 5 for Christmas and I had been playing with the photo apps just for fun, and sharing the results on my Facebook page. I’m keenly aware of the controversy about using them in a pro context, and I’ve been reluctant to do so. But faced with the frustration of not being able to of working freely, I didn’t hesitate.”

Hipstamatic, one of the most popular photo apps on iPhone, offers a range of film-like effects (official motto: “digital photography never looked so analog”). But unlike photo-driven platform Instagram, it requires users to set the filters before the shots are taken.

“Photographers write with light,” Patrick said, explaining his choice. “Because I couldn’t do that – i.e. I had no control over the aperture of my smartphone – I decided to ‘write’ with Hipstamatic. Whatever one says about the results, I have to say: it was fun.”

A picture taken with an iPhone using Hipstamatic shows Iraqi youth standing next to a Chevrolet Corvette from the 1970s during the Friday motor show in Baghdad's district of Al-Jadriya on February 8, 2013.

Drama, manipulación y verdad: manteniendo la utilidad del fotoperiodismo


Excelente artículo sobre el retoque fotográfico, manipulación y fotoperiodismo de Fred Ritchin, profesor de Fotografía en la Universidad de Nueva York, con una interesantísima propuesta:

“sugerí … que en cada una de las cuatro esquinas de la fotografía se consigne información por parte del fotógrafo, la cual permita conocer más sobre cómo fue editada para el lector interesado”.
