Phone Apps - Undecided

Retro Camera Phone App

This shot of my house during a snow was shot with my Droid using a Retro Camera phone app. It looks okay here. I converted it to b/w to remover the overly sentimental washed-out color cast that the app puts in every pick. The photos look a bit like Holga shots, which to me all look the same and seem like a gimmick. What I wonder is, "Is nostalgia so strong that these Holga shots and retro camera phone apps will saturate the visual market until everyone who remembers the 70's dies off, or will I get a break any time before then?"

About Me

My photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
