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
Great-- When I don't want the strong vignette/noise of JohnS, but want a lens much less picky about light than Helga.
Maybe this will be the combo that gets me into hipstamatic, gonna give it a go ;)
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
@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 😊👍
