First Impressions: The Oakland HipstaPak

Hello there Hipstarollers! This month ya'll are heading out west to come visit me (Tammy) in the mostly "Sunny East" Bay of Oakland. Ironically, it's been pouring rain here all week.

The Oakland HipstaPak.... Surprise! It's a desaturated, borderless color film and a lens that "pops!" How novel. Like Jack London himself, his namesake lens is packing some saturated mid tones with a cool blue light... Tho, if that actually represents Jack London Square located on the water in Oakland...the jury is still out. Telegraph, a major thoroughfare that begins in uptown Oakland and ends in downtown Berkeley, is intended to represent this new desaturated film.

So show us how you are getting along with this new gear by tagging it #Hipstaroll_Week152. Make sure to test out some multi exposures and tag them #Hipstaroll_MultiEx. Want to mix and match new friends with old? Let's see some cool #Hipstaroll_OaklandCombos. As always remember the rules:

Tag this week’s combo::
#JackLondon + #Telegraph + #Hipstaroll_Week152
And if you use a flash, tag that too.
Shots using this combo + Multi Exposure please add #Hipstaroll_MultiEx to the above tags.

First Impressions: The Dalston HipstaPak

Another First Friday has come, and we all know what that means... new Hipsta gear! This month we are hopping across the pond and heading over to jolly old England! "Hipster to the hilt" describes the neighborhood of Dalston (located in the London borough of Hackney) where we find the inspiration for The Dalston HipstaPak.

Hackney is yet another color borderless film, this time boasting a sharp focus. The Benedict lens, however, offers something a bit different this time around with some Bokeh effects, a photographic technique used to blur other parts of the image in order to create focus on the subject. In this case we see it more of a sun glare effect.

While Hipstaroll is still on break and us busy bees are working hard on "real life" projects, we would love to see you all put the new gear to use. Show us how you are getting along with this new Pak by tagging it #Hipstaroll_Week151. And show those multi exposures some love and tag them #Hipstaroll_MultiEx. Want to mix and match new friends with old? Let's see some cool #Hipstaroll_DalstonCombos. As always remember the rules:

Tag this week’s combo::
#Benedict+ #Hackney + #Hipstaroll_Week151
And if you use a flash, tag that too.
Shots using this combo + Multi Exposure please add #Hipstaroll_MultiEx to the above tags.

First Impressions:: The Yosemite HipstaPak

Why don’t you go take a hike… and don’t forget to pack your camera bag with the new Hipsta gear, because this month we are doing it au naturel… with the Yosemite HipstaPak. (Gee, anyone think it’s a big fat coincidence that the new OSX software for Mac releasing this month is also named Yosemite? Yeah, we didn’t either.) Beautifully imperfect, the Muir lens will whisk you back in time, like all the way to the back of a station wagon circa 1983 with your little sister who really shouldn’t have eaten that 2nd chili dog… slightly offset, a bit warm, and a little blurry to boot. The Sequoia film keeps things cool with its easy going blue-purple hue and what’s become that go-to borderless way. What are you waiting for? Get out there and hug a tree, but don’t forget to shoot it.

We are on still on break, so we won’t be monitoring things as closely, but we wanted ya’ll to have a tag to share and discuss the new gear. As always, don’t just tag and run… take the time to visit the weekly roll and check out each other's shots. Make it a point to meet some new folks, leave a comment and make a new friend. We will be available for any questions. Later this week, we will post a Mix & Match with suggested combos using the new gear.

Tag this week's combo::
#Muir + #Sequoia + #Hipstaroll_Week150
And if you use a flash, tag that too. Shots using this combo + Multi Exposure please add #Hipstaroll_MultiEx to the above tags.

Hey there guys and dolls! You've probably figured it out by now.... we are taking a bit of a break. Big Hipsta-apologies for leaving y'all hanging this long. We had every intention of announcing this sooner but life has truly been busy, and in the happiest of ways. As some of you know this back to school season was a bit extra special for one of your Hipstaroll leaders. That's right, punkrawkpurl has gone back to school to study graphic design, and once again, do something totally different with her life. Leigh has also been settling into new routines as she started the school year by sending two kiddos to Kindergarten.

Thank you all for your constant love and support, we count ourselves as lucky ducks to have held your attention all these years now. And rest assured friends, we will be back with another year in review bonanza so start thinking about which Hipstaroll combos have most rocked your world. We will be asking you guys for submissions when the time comes.

For those of you wondering about First Impressions this month, we will be assigning a tag for the new gear soon so stay tuned!

First Impressions:: The Jordaan HipstaPak

First Impressions Mix & Match

As much as we all love playing with new HipstaPaks every month, let's be honest... not every pak is a winner right out of the gate. And even if they are, half the fun is experimenting and discovering new combos. Each of us have a different shooting style:: low contrast/high contrast, love textures/ hate textures, hooray-for-crazy-borders/ clean-edges-only-please. Depending on what you like to shoot & how you like to shoot it... the pre-packaged gear may have you singing from the hilltops or grumbling under your breath.

Every month, in addition to an assigned combo for the new HipstaPak, we will assign a tag to be used for exploring the new gear with older gear. This month the tag is #Hipstaroll_JordaanCombos. You can add to this tag all month (ONE photo per day). We will be checking the tag throughout the month.

Please be sure to tag all of your combo info in your opening caption so we don't have to dig to find it. We will be patrolling this tag throughout the month, looking for combos to feature.

First Impressions:: The Jordaan HipstaPak

Like a blank canvas, the Rijks film comes alive with textured circular scribbles and an oomph of focus smack dab in the center. Not just another borderless wonder of a film... this time with the spirit of the Old World artists.

Not far from the Rijksmuseum in South Amsterdam is the Van Gogh Museum, home to masterpieces such as The Bedroom, Irises and countless self portraits. Vincent's lens brings the cool contrast of The Starry Night to your shots. See if you can explore your creativity this week and be inspired by the master for which this new lens is named for.

We loved Cecily's (@cecilyc) Multiple Exposure shots so much that we just had to share another one with you this week. Yoona and Dixie sure seem to be double-exposure friendly.

Cecily's own words say it all. Let's see what she discovered while working with Yoona and Dixie.

I only have good things to report this week about the combo!! I really fell in love with how Yoona delicately desaturates the image while at the same time also slightly warms things up! To make it even more interesting, I found that shadows take on very slight blue tones. It sounds like a jumble of concepts but they all worked together brilliantly for me!

The slight desaturation plus the cool toned shadows made for beautiful retro looking images. But wait! Look out now because here comes Dixie -- she has uneven edges and throws in some random light leaks - just to keep you on your toes!! I did not detect a pattern to the light leaks and I rather enjoyed sitting back and seeing what she had to deliver!! In many ways the uneven borders of Dixie reminded me of when I used to do Polaroid transfers -- with the old peel apart polaroid film-- the edges were never even or consistent and I loved that!

A nice surprise from this combo is that Yoona will sometimes lock her focus in on the subject in the foreground while rendering a slightly softer focus for the background -- this lends itself to some beautiful portrait images. I found that under bright lights at night this combo was quite amazing -- Yoona and Dixie working together to render some cool night shots.

As far the flashes go I used the new Triple Crown flash to pump up colors on grey days and also Jolly Rainbo 2X was quite special as well.

I am curious to know what your views are on this combo -- what flashes you liked and what lighting conditions you found to suit the combo the best?? Please share!

Multi Exposing

Our Correspondent this week, Cecily (@cecilyc) had wonderful results with her multi shots. Here is what she had to say about her "Adventures in Multi-Exposure Land"

I am confident that those who have been hesitant to venture into Multi-Exposure land in the past will have a pleasant experience this week! Yoona is a great lens to use for multis because of her tendency to add warmth to images --- no fear of blown out exposures here!! Dixie, in her southern sweet style, will also help you out since she has some crazy uneven borders plus random light leaks! Come on now -- what is not to love about this mix up!! I'd love to see the Hipstaroll Multi Exposure tag explode with gorgeous end of the summer multi-exposures. I haven't yet ventured from more than two multi-exposures but I'd love to see if you can take us all there!! I think we're all ready for this journey to begin -- so what's holding you back?

If Desert Sunset were a sherbet flavor... this combo would be a double scoop of that! Say hello to the this week’s combo, dreamy Dixie and yummy Yoona. Dixie is best known for her light leaking ways and that fiery ‘Burning up for your love’ border. Yoona is very versatile in her own hazy ways. With her overcast hues, she warms up your shots. Don’t let her smoggy side fool you, she keeps the scene sharp with a punch of contrast.

Please welcome back Hipstaroll Correspondent, Cecily C. (@cecilyc)
