It Was a Hipsta Kinda Year


2012 was a slow year for me in regards to my usual picture-taking adventures.  Yeah, there’s a decent sized bucket of unprocessed film with all kinds of thought-provoking images to uncover.  But it’s nothing like in years past.  I guess being jumped by 3 dudes on Halloween, harassed by many, and unlawfully detained by police for taking pictures in public is just too tiresome for this ol’ dog.  Despite that, I did what everybody else is doing nowadays (privately, I was told I should follow the beaten path more often), so I tried my best at raising my digital photography street-cred by snapping a few pics with my Hipstamatic equipped iPhone.

It was fun and pretty deece for some picture-taking, but it’s nothing like  shooting with meat and potatoes, B&W film.

Be warned though.

Los Angeles can be a gritty and gross place, and I tend to focus on that kind of stuff.  Especially if it’s lying on the ground, which is where all the good stuff hangs out.

Merry Christmas.

iPhoneography / The Street Volume

Anton Kawasaki

I recently picked up an iPhone 4 for a cross-country trip that just wrapped up. Along the way I took a few photos, which was fun since this is my first pseudo-digital camera and the immediacy of being able to see the image was kick-ass. I don’t think I’ll ever use an iPhone for any of my street or documentary work though, and I definitely won’t be posting any of my trip photos anywhere. They’re not good enough or interesting enough to share with the masses.

On the other hand, I have heard about all of the great stuff people have been doing with apps (for the record, I hate this word) and their iPhones. So since I had some downtime this weekend, I decided to search the web in hopes of finding a street photographer who’s put down the SLR for an iPhone.

And luckily, I came across Anton Kawasaki.  Enjoy.
