I have been to Gran Canaria (Spain) with my family. The weather was both splendid and not so good. Armed with my camera and Sigma 1.4/50mm together with VSCO film, it was big joy. I found back to my photographic interest. All by a sudden I was walking around, shooting as back in the good old days.
I guess no one have missed that I’m a big fan of digital film emulation and especially the products from Visual Supply Co.
They released a new app for the iPhone called VSCOcam. I bought it and gave it a tried and yes – it was as good as I hoped it would be. The black and white images have low contrast and I have some control on the added grain. The interface is easy to use and learn and if you have a vision of how the photo should look like it is pretty easy to reach that goal. The only con’s that I see for the moment is there is no crop and aligning tool and if I want to undo some settings it can be done on the latest setting or reset for all settings. The toolbox (=settings) is not made so you can add and the also remove settings by setting – only add.
The biggest issue right now is: what should I do with my DSLR – I do not need it anymore..
Here are some samples, unfortunately without any kind of red thread..
