Hipstamatic – Terry Cockerham Fine Art Photography – Dallas, Texas

In April of 2012 I visited Big Bend National Park. Loaded not only with my usual complement of cameras and lenses, I also brought along my Diana Camera (plastic/toy camera) and my iPhone loaded with the Hipstamatic App. My plan was to triple shoot everything, once with my digital camera and then with the Diana and the iPhone. As it turned out, the plan was simply too ambitious. Time, temperature and consideration for another photographer traveling with me precluded shooting everything with every camera (it takes a considerable amount of time to reload a Diana in the field). This portfolio contains travel photography shot with the iphone and processed through the Hipstamatic app.

In November 2015, I again carried my digital equipment and my cell phone (but not the Diana Camera) and again I incorporated the use of the Hipstamatic App as part of my shooting tools. This time the photos taken on the phone were photographed in such a way they appear to be tintypes. You will find samples of the those photos at the bottom of the page. Because my time in the area was limited, I only have 5 images posted in this style.
