There has been a lot of discussions on Flickr and around various blogs about the use of Hipstamatic and iphoneography in general. I’ve been using the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone for quite a while as a source of images for my digital collages. I like to use images that I create as opposed to appropriating other peoples images. When I’m out and about I am always looking for interesting things to incorporate into my collages. I also use various photo altering apps such as Picture Show and PhotoShop Mobile on the Hipstamatic photos.
Next I use Brushes on my iPad to create the collages. I work in layers and I am able to create transparencies and erasures on each layer. I can work very quickly and I can duplicate images numerous times.
