Re-Discovering Hipstamatic

Ten nights in Ibiza and I stupidly decided to leave the camera at home knowing you will be able capture beautiful landscape shots along with the traditional family holiday snaps. I have the iPhone XS but I decided be ring along an old Canon Digital IXUS 70 point and shoot with built in flash. I wished I left this at home and just used the iPhone which was far superior in day light.

Going through the various apps I have I came across Hipstamatic. I have not used this app in years. It has great filters and the quality is good but my only problem is their are far too many choices to make. Too many lens choices and film filers. I don't mind a few for the fun factor but I don't want to be wasting time trying to get the combination right, also it only shoots 1:1 (Square) well that's what I thought until I started to re-discover Hipstamatic. You now have the option to shoot various frame dimensions. With this in mind I thought I would give Hipstamtic another go and glad I did. It's a great app. It also stores the original picture on the iPhone Camera roll. Give it a go and have fun. Choose the Hipstamatic pre-pak combinations to save time.

New Instagram Account

I'm sure most of you know and would have heard I now have switched Instagram Accounts. I created @RobinLDN many years ago not knowing where or how far my photography would go and I have been so lucky and fortunate to have met some amazing influential people along the way who have given me advice and helped me progress as a photographer. Back in February I re-posted an image which obviously did not cause offence first time round but did when I posted for Flashback Friday. The image was instantly deleted and I'm not sure if this is official but searching online it would appear I was put on a shadow ban. This means my images that I would upload would not appear in followers feeds or under the hash tags I attached it to. Unfortunately you are unable to contact anyone at Instagram so I set up a new account and uploaded the same picture and I got more interaction under my new account with 5000 less followers so here I am. I've decided to ditch the old account and concentrate on my new one @RobinPopePhoto - It's almost like I'm re-branding. Please check it and if you like my work previously on my old account please give me a follow.

Standon Calling, located in Hertfordshire, welcomed a record 15,000 visitors with headliners including Rag’N’Bone Man, Wolf Alice and Nile Rogers & Chic closing Sunday night. Lewis Capaldi, Kate Nash, Inhaler, The Cuban Brothers, The Big Moon and Roisin Murphy also played over the weekend.

Each year this festival gets bigger and better and 2020 they will be celebrating their fifteen year anniversary with early bird tickets already on sale. To avoid disappointment please visit their site. 

A collection of my favourite images taken during the weekend that include Inhaler who by far was the best new band I've seen at any festival.
