“One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all”

It turns out sometimes those sliders don’t do anything at all.

Play around with the editing sliders with a photo using the Dreamy film and not much, if anything, changes. And with only a few exceptions (Fynn, Pablo) changing the lens rarely results in a discernible difference.

How do they do that?

Same shot with Foxy, Dreamy

Is it a bug or is it a feature?

Aristotle is not just a black and white film. Here’s a link to an article Eric Rozen wrote about “Aristotle’s magic wand.” Adjust the vibrancy slider and you will find surprising results. The effect varies depending on the lens you use. Using a flash may negate the effect.

Hipstamatic briefly corrected the “bug”, but the outcry from users convinced them that it was indeed a “feature” and in a subsequent update they brought it back.

Hi Folks, hmm, not too much activity this week. I wonder if we should reduce this to one a month? So many other challenges on it’s difficult to put something on all of them. Whadda think?

Although there may not be that many entries, I love this challenge because it’s educational. I always learn something new. What I learned this week is that kitchen utensils can look marvellous if you combine them with a picture of a glossy-lipped Marilyn Monroe!:lol:

Talk about chalk and cheese! But the Hipsta combo just elevates the image imo. So, lkbside Leslie is my winner this week. I”m looking forward to her choices.:thumbs:

I like the weekly thing personally, when things get spread over two weeks I think they may get tired. Or maybe I just like life in the fast lane :D
If you look at these challenges its usually the same people anyway (I think). It becomes hard when you have't got a particular lens/film combo as well.
Maybe the way to go is to switch it every few weeks to 'do this, using Hipsta? Or some variation? Problem is it could just become another BWC or MCC only using Hipsta.

Oh, I’m loving this challenge... one a month feels like not enough considering how many thousands :whistle: of films and lenses there are?

Please keep this going — it motivated me to fire up Hipstamatic for the first time in ... who knows. It's been a while.

Didn't Foxy initially appear as an offering for the Disposable app? I loved that thing, when it worked. I also seem to remember wincing at the "Let's roll, bro" marketing campaign.

This is Foxy + Dreamy in the back yard, and I wish I had more color to throw at them.

Of course I love the Hipsta interest. I would like to keep it going. Maybe just one combo/theme every week would stimulate more participation?

Ok, good. Just checking out the feeling and clearly it’s still hip so lkbside the next one is up and we would be most grateful if you could choose two combos.

I think we should stick to 2. I, for one, haven’t had both for the last 3 weeks which has been a surprise because I thought I had most but clearly not and I am sure others also haven’t had both.

Exactly, if there is a choice of two you are probably going to have at least one of them.

How about a bit of variation this week.

Grain or no-grain?

Pair BlacKeys Supergrain or BlacKeysXF with the lens and/or flash of your choice.

Feel free to experiment with the grain/texture sliders using either one.
