The above image shot with the Hipstamatic app, Bettie XL lens and Kodot XGrizzled “film” . . .
Well, I downloaded Camera+ and CameraBag . . . I haven’t messed with the Camera+ app, but as for CameraBag . . . it’s nice to have MORE lenses (Lomo, “Helga”, etc., etc.) . . . the one lens that was really a disappointment was the “infrared” setting . . . having worked with infrared film, the silver-y b&w neggie image is nowhere close to the washed out gradations of an infrared negative or color transparency . . . looks more like a heat sensing image (infrared) . . . true infrared film reads color differently – so I’m using some photos of the famoso Ultraviolet, from Avant Garde, issue #9 . . . the original photos in this article were shot with infrared color film, and I used the default iPod Touch camera to copy the magazine pages for this post . . .
Number 9 . . . number 9 . . .
Ultraviolet was one of the personalities best known for her association with Andy Warhol . . .
I shot some pics with the “infrared” setting on the CameraBag app, and found the results to be more like “solarized” black and white prints . . . might be better to call the b&w image “solarized” rather than “infrared“, and maybe the developers could work on getting a color image that is representative of an infrared “film” image . . .
“Straight” iPod Touch camera photo . . .
. . . CameraBag “infrared” setting . . .
. . . gotta play with the “infrared” setting and find it’s “true” identity.
I still prefer the Hipstamatic and Retro Camera apps, with PhotoForge 1.91 for manipulating pics . . . oh. and can’t forget ToonCamera !!!
