Portraits are fun using the Hipstamatic Camera application. I tend to use one film and lens combo with Hipsta - JohnS and KodotGrizzled. I like the way they render the skin tone, and, specifically like the the look if the image in a flat front light. For me that is just the beginning....I usually play with softness, structure and color trying to make the eyes draw the viewer into the image. This can be accomplished using Snapseed, Filterstorm and blender....

The Road and the Sky

Barns, iPhone4s, Kane, Pennsylvania
Drove back home from Toledo today...Actually left Saturday and stopped in Erie, PA where I stayed at the fabulous Holiday Inn Express - got the last room - remind me not to travel on Saturday night next time.Woke up very early Sunday and out the door by 6:30AM - drove route 6 from Erie to New York State looking for color....seemed like I was maybe a week early but did manage to find a few images to make, both with my iPhone and big boy camera.......The big boy image of this barn will be posted on later today....

Toledo was a great time as always - got to re-unite with the Donuts and and the Donut ho's......a way inside joke. Eric Hillenbrand and Condessa Croninger were fabulous hosts at 20 North Gallery - and we surpassed last year in money raised at the opening.

But the best time was spent at The Toledo School for the Arts and St. Ursula's Academy. I was able to speak with art students from 8th grade through high school - and was totally impressed with these artists and the work they were doing. Who knew Toledo was so rich in the arts....never entered MY mind.  Definitely a must to re-visit next time through Toledo.

Here are a couple of links my friend Teri Lou Dantzler sent me today - thought I wold share them with everyone...Teri's blog is a great source of iPhone information.
