They say the best camera is the one that’s with you. For me, that’s almost always my iPhone. And the best camera in my iPhone is the Hipstamatic.
These photos represent about a year’s worth of places I’ve been and things I’ve seen—from Mexico to India, from Kentucky to Texas. All of the photos in this book were taken with the Hipstamatic camera using an iPhone 3GS, and occasionally a macro or wide-angle lens attachment. They were not edited or post-processed. All of the effects you see came straight from the camera, from hundreds of possible lens, film and flash combinations chosen before the picture was taken.
I hope you enjoy looking at my photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them, and I hope they inspire you to take more.
