Forget about the Monday blahs, let's swap tips and tricks about this weeks combo! So do tell... how are you getting on with this weeks combo so far? Let's discuss the #BlacKeysSuperGrain + #Jane combo, aka #HipstaRoll_Week63.

And to start us off, here is what this weeks Official Hipstaroll Correspondent, Rachel {@iwife} has to say about the combo:

Let's not mince words here: I... am in love. BlacKeys Supergrain's high-contrast and softly vignetted film combine with the piercing clarity of Jane's bright eye, producing what could be the perfect storm of Hipsta's vintage black & whites. / Unlike sister Helga with her blue hues or brother Jimmy with his mellow yellows; Jane is plain. Plain and lovely, Jane see's you for who you are, and she’s keepin’ it real in this sultry black & white combo. Jane is a new friend; part of Hipstamatic's recent shift away from 'vintage' towards 'right now.' I like Jane. Can I keep her? / As always, BlacKeys Supergrain is a standout of dramatic monochrome. You might lose some detail in the lows, but wait! Don't give it up... Dial it up! Your flash, that is. Try ‘em with and without your "bulb" to brighten and bring out those details. I think you'll be surprised as I was. Laser Lemon is a real zinger with this combo and Pop Rox will add maximum bright to your whites. Should make for some stunning portraits too, which I didn't experiment with as of yet. / Oh, sweet Jane... you complete me. Ain't new love grand?! *ْPhoto by Official Hipstaroll Correspondent Rachel Sawyer.*ْ Please direct general Hipstaroll questions to your adoring hipstaroll leaders, @punkrawkpurl @lucky_chucky
  • The low light shots are awesome here. It really shocking what this combo and a steady hand can accomplish. I've been using the Red-Eye Gel flash, but its really subtle with this combo. I'll have to do some science and see what I come up with.

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE this combo!! having so much fun with it.

  • @iwife this is a very good and clean bw combo. ☺

  • I am absolutely without a doubt in love!! But I do want to try blackeyssupergrain and wonder.

  • I am now in love with this combo. Thank you!

  • Awesome combo, love it!

  • I really like Jane especially for street photography but I haven't quite got to grips with this combo yet.

  • I was just going to say the same as @tpb3jd Haven't had a chance to try this combo yet but the write-up sold me. @iwife 👏😍

  • Love this combo. This will certainly be a cat-portrait go-to for me from now on. But it's been great for pretty much everything I've shot with it. 💙

  • 💚

  • My favorite to date

  • brhau 5y ago

    Great-- When I don't want the strong vignette/noise of JohnS, but want a lens much less picky about light than Helga.

  • k1ngy 5y ago

    Maybe this will be the combo that gets me into hipstamatic, gonna give it a go ;)

  • Great one!

  • Loving this combo! @iwife great shot! 👌

  • I love this combo so much!! Jane has totally replaced JohnS for me. I have yet to try the flashes but will give them a go! Great summing up @iwife very well written! 😘

  • Great points, actually. @hellarob If you've used an app like Snapseed or Filterstorm, you'll recall you can bring out the highs and lows of an image by adjusting the reds, blues greens and yellows of a black & white image. The gel flashes of Hipsta work in the same manner 😊👌

  • And your images have been beautiful! @princessraya

  • @tpb3jd Cheers! 😊✌

  • @iwife that's usually why I stick with the red gel on bw combos. The laser is starting to look more and more appealing though.

  • @nomolas Indeed it is! So glad you're enjoying them

  • @olivesandpickles oh yeah, I'm excited for that combo too 😁

  • @garymon16 great to hear :) It really is outstanding ✌cheers!

  • @shazalenko13 glad you're enjoying this week!

  • @iwife fantastic shot and write up, I'm loving this combo

  • @redscat agree on the cat portraits… 😄

  • Really enjoyed playing with the combo...only posted one to the tags but actually shot several including portraits 👍✨

  • My sec fav combo so far!!!

  • From viewing the gallery so far, this combo works in just about any lighting situation. Brilliant description and shot @iwife !!

  • @iwife great photo and write up! thank you for the tips. 😊 just like what @hellarob said, i love the low light shots with this combo. 😍

  • @iwife a fabulous precap of course Rachel! This is a great combo indeed. May actually replace it with my current b&w fave. (watts/Claunch) wonderful shot here, I'm really enjoying this weeks combo!

  • @iwife Great write up! I think this is going to become my "go to" black and white combo!

  • @danisalvadori Jane's clarity really is perfect for street style, right? Cheers! 🍸

  • @mickmcc aww thanks so much! I loved this assignment 😁👍

  • @redscat yeah the cats are looking extra special this week! 😁👌

  • @sincere001 @jiemfalcon @christiane77 @my_lola_love Thanks for your comments! I'm happy you're enjoying this week's combo. I know I did 😊👍

  • @brhau exactly! I love the mildly John-eSque quality of this combo 👌

  • @k1ngy yeah! Give it a go 👍👍 and the hipstaroll community is a great place to learn more too

  • @christiane77 @my_lola_love @vsalus thanks so much! Definitely give the flashes a try, they can really transform the outcome

  • @rachelwilde Rachel to Rachel: I think for color Jane, is definitely giving JohnS a run for his money ;) but I do adore that grungy haze. For sure flash it up, girl! 👍👍

  • @selinag80 @hipstagrapher @insideout_side @kiwinan thank you! I had a blast with this assignment

  • Haha! @fabsgrassi awesome Fabs! 👌

  • @celiafigjam yeah exactly! The learning process is half the fun 😊✌

  • @insideout_side how did you like the portraits? I still need to shoot a couple...

  • @lucky_chucky hey thanks Chuck! Have to agree; the gallery looks fab this week 😜👌

  • @janeoako I have an image to post in my feed tomorrow that really exemplifies the low light magic 😁👍👍 @hellarob stay tuned...

  • @leighmns aww, thank you Leigh! 😘 I feel like it doesn't have to replace Claunch since Claunch is a sepia tone and Supergrain is a true b&w. Two number one's 😉👍👍

  • @iwife oooh... can't wait!!! i really need to learn some more! 😊

  • @rickspaulding thanks so much for your comments Rick! It's definitely 'favorite' material 👍

  • @iwife first off, i want to say uh-mazing photo. Seriously, the epitomy of contrasty b&w and the compo is off the hook. I learned this combo craves light. With no selective exposure, positioning is key. I had a few shots completely blown out by my relationship to the light. With my shed photo, it worked to my advantage having the whole lower left of the frame black an fading into my subject upper right. I have not tries this with ant flashes yet but that is a great idea.

  • What a beautiful shot! And those words...you can really write!! Loved reading this @iwife  

  • @iwife However street photo is really hard to do in unedited hipsta as you have to get so close. And then there's the shake to randomise thing. I set off on Saturday to use this combo and got some great images but in a completely different setting!

  • Loving the combo

  • This combo definitely is a sure thing for serious bw photography, there is not much uncertainty about what the outcome will be. as I said in another comment, it's one of those combos that showcases that Hipsatmatic is so much about creating moods. Strong light sources enhance the effect even further.

  • Aww, thank you Danielle! @afdani1984 I definitely think you'll love the flashes 

  • thank you so much, Larissa! @larissakalinka I'm happy you enjoyed the post  

  • which explains why I shoot so little street with Hipsta  @danisalvadori I also rarely use 'shake to randomize' because I'm a super control freak. haha

  • Great to hear, Gav! @gavhayes Cheers 

  • trouble with light or just not a b&w fan? @fashionistanyc

  • absolutely. well said, Tilman! @devteros

  • sideo 5y ago

    @iwife I'm loving it! Gonna keep taking more and prob post em up real soon:)))

  • not a fan of this combo.. unless I'm shooting into direct light, like the sun, I'm finding it to be very difficult to get a single useable image.. the results are always too dark. I can see this being great for some silhouettes or very graphic lines

  • I am seriously struggling with this combo! 😨 I'm taking diligent notes from all the comments above.

  • Play with the flashes and it might make all the difference 😊✌ @sf_anathea

  • @webbetty flashes flashes 👍👍 try a bunch of them :)

  • @iwife I have, nothing good yet, even with jollyrainbow2x.. i probably just need better photo subjects!

  • I agree, in love with this combo!!!

  • I love this combo. I just keep forgetting to try it with the flash.

  • This may be the first time I would say: don't use JollyRainbo with this combo. it makes everything even darker. @sf_anathea I think PopRox or Laser Lemon are the way to go, if you wanted to keep trying. But the great thing about Hipsta is... There are so many other combos you don't have to focus on just one 😊 cheers!

  • @iwife yes, I was shocked that jolly rainbow was engancing the darkness! I tried lemon but definitely not poprox.. I usually think of that as a kind of a useless flash, but I shall try it - thanks for the tip!

  • @iwife Thanks Rachel! 👍

  • I too am I loooooove. Look at the page as a whole - makes me want to do an entire feed in this combo! ❤

  • Great tips @iwife will try lemon flash next time 😊👍

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.

PLEASE NOTE::
• NEW photos only, please. We want you to get out and shoot, not tag existing posts.
• NO additional filters, crops or edits.
• 3 tags per combo + 3 multi tags per combo

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.

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.

PLEASE NOTE::

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 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.

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.

It is with great sadness that we grieve the loss of yet another Hipsta friend. Henne (@cyberhenne) and just last week Tess (@reindeerpaws). The loss of these two talented photographers is felt far and wide throughout the many Hipsta communities here on Instagram. We will miss their images, their heartfelt comments, and most of all...them. Our Hipstaroll hearts are sending heaps of love and peace to their loved ones. They will both be missed greatly. Please visit their memorial galleries and contribute what you can with images and words.

#Flowers4Tess and #WindowsForHenne

Hipstaroll will be silent today as we remember our friends.

It feels so good to step out of the box every now and then. This week's circular frame has us doing just that. Before we see what Sarah (@3robins) has to say about this week's combo, we want to remind you to check out the amazing #hipstamotionpicture that @postaljeff put together using this gear. He has great tips for producing an interestingly composed video.

And now, here is what Sarah has to say about thinking and shooting out of the box this week:

Is your head spinning, or have you mastered the art of the round? GS0 can be a challenge as a photographer: we long to shoot with the rule of thirds. This film pushes us to refocus our thoughts- and center our images. Keep in mind that this film lightens it's center as well- almost like a built in flash. Combined with the soft edging of Chivas- you'll receive a dreamy, lightened effect.
Chivas will also add some moody blues to those circles. If you would like to counteract this: try a flash. My favorite has been Jolly Rainbo, but I also really enjoyed the Red and Green Gels.
I'm thrilled to see circles filling this week's gallery! We haven't stepped out of our boxes since week 79, so I hope you'll enjoy a different perspective this week! Thanks friends!

Hipsta Motion Picture vol 2.

Last month we introduced a new feature, our collaboration with the creator of @creativevideo to show you how to get your Roll shots moving. Here is another installment, with more juicy tips. Have you tried a Hipsta Motion Picture yet? Tag them with #hipstaroll_movingpictures, we’d love to pop some corn and give 'em a watch.

Please enjoy this 2nd installment featuring the #Hipstaroll_Week147 combo, #Chivas + #GS0 / #OG.

From the motion-mastermind of @postaljeff:: Last month we went over the how-to of a #hipstamotionpicture. This round, let's talk a little bit about composition ideas! First, I have to thank @justeyes for being my model (at 6am, no less- had to beat the crowds to our filming locations). So there are basically two routes you can go: one is more of the traditional time-lapse technique, where you keep the camera still (ideally with a tripod) and film something that will be intriguing to watch sped up. Clouds are the most obvious example of this, though I'm sure you can come up with other great ideas.

The other route is to move the camera while taking pictures. As I mentioned last time, this can be tricky for making a film that isn't too jerky, but taking more pictures with small movements between them will help. Another reason to set the app to low resolution: if you take too many too quickly, you have to pause and let pictures develop before you can keep going (I believe it stops at 9 developing shots). This was the first time I'd thought to combine more than one scene into one video. The circular film got me thinking as to what I could do, and the idea of zooming in on someone's head popped into mind. The possibilities for ideas are as limitless as your creativity! So give it a shot. Or 300 shots, as was the case with this one. 😉 Video by Jeff Kelley & methodically shot with Hipstamatic Classic using #Chivas + #GS0 / #OG + a lot of patience

Multi Exposing

Fresh off the notification hotline:: This weekend only, download the Multiple Exposure Kit for Hipstamatic Classic for FREE!
What an exciting announcement for us to make before introducing this week’s Multi Exposure shot and notes from the talented Sarah. Here’s what she had to say about shooting doubles with this week's curvy combo:

If ever there was a love/hate relationship- it's with the multiple exposure option. I'll be honest folks: I don't even want to admit how many shots I trashed in an attempt to get something useful. With a strong lens, the circle multi works... however- Chivas is a gentle creature. In my case- that led to a majority of blown out images. So now let me recommend our hero: Flash!
I had small success with shady places and really pushed myself to leave the flash off, but my best shots were all courtesy of our friend Jolly Rainbo. This week: I challenge you to give that round multi a GO. Can you step out of the box?

Can we get a ROUND of applause for this week's combo? C’mon now, what goes aROUND comes aROUND. Okay, we’ve come full circle and suppose it’s time to reveal the combo. It’s been a while since we have taken GS-0 (OG for you Oggl folks) for a spin. This circular darling requires you to stop and think completely different about composition when setting up your shots. Aside from his circular ways, keep in mind that GS-0 has a tendency to overexpose and blow out at his center. Our lens for this week is tilt-shifty with a soft blue hue and hearty burst of contrast… yup, that’s how Chivas rolls. Just wait and see how Chivas' contrast takes charge of GS-0's high exposure.
TIP:: Not feeling the whole moody blue thing this week? Fire up those flashes and customize your rounds.
