#iSnapSF Field Journal Available Now

#iSnapSF Field Journal is the result of over 1,000 images snapped on the streets of San Francisco over the last four months using iPhone 4 devices and Synthetic Corp’s Hipstamatic Application.

At 44 pages, the journal is comprised of 42 images, ranging from candid street scenes to street portraiture as well as other urban scenes and oddities.

Our goal when putting #iSnapSF together was to show that it’s not about having the best camera, but rather always having a camera with you. In the end, we believe that street photography is about having an eye and being receptive to your surroundings.

Hipstamatic was chosen over the iPhone’s native camera for several reasons: 1) it’s retro and moody aesthetic; 2) the challenge of not being able to crop the square images as a border and vignetting are automatically applied to each frame; and 3) the app’s unpredictability…just when you think you have it figured out, it throws you a curve ball.

Priced at $14, all #iSnapSF Field Journal proceeds in excess of printing costs are being donated to Larkin Street Youth Services, a San Francisco-based non-profit organization that provides various support services for at-risk youth ages 12-24.

Please join us for the official #iSnapSF launch party and exhibition at the “Haus of Hipstamatic” on Thursday, February 23, 7:00-9:00p.m., 74 Langton Street, San Francisco, CA. 94103. For info: www.hipstamatic.com.

Jeremy Brooks: Variations On A Theme

I’ve been enjoying Jeremy Brooks’ Flickr Photostream for several years.  He is a prolific, talented photographer with a passion for shooting San Francisco.

In fact, one of Jeremy’s passions is shooting San Francisco’s iconic Transamerica Building.  In Jeremy’s own words, “I work in a building with a great view of the Transamerica Building. During 2012, I am taking a photograph of the view each day when I arrive at the office. The photographs will all be taken using random settings with Hipstamatic.”

After the jump, some of Jeremy’s variations on the Transamerica theme:
