On Scott Strazzante, street photography, the Hipstamatic App and the Bucktown Hipstapak

Taken in Cambridge using the new Bucktown Hipstapak
As regular readers of this blog will know I'm passionate about using the Hipstamatic app for the iPhone to take photos—three of which I include in this post. Many people continue to dismiss iPhone photography (iPhoneography) as merely playing at photography but there are an increasing number of serious photographers now using the app in their everyday work. One such photographer is Scott Strazzante (b.1964) who is an American photojournalist at the San Francisco Chronicle.

Well, this month Hipstamatic are celebrating his street photography work by releasing the excellent Bucktown Hipstapak and I'd like to use this opportunity to point you to a very short, two-and-a-half minute long film about his forthcoming book which contains only his black and white Hipstamatic photos and, in the film, he speaks a little about why he uses the app. I hope you enjoy hearing him speak and that, just perhaps, it will encourage you to get hold of the app yourself and get out into the world to take your own photographs of this most amazing world in which we live.
