Hipstamatic released the “Tintype SnapPak” and it’s pretty cool, so we wanted to spread the word. There’s a few interesting things going on with this kit, but most interesting is in the “lens” itself. The Tinto 1884 lens uses facial recognition to recreate a very shallow depth of field unique for each photograph. This is similar in some ways to what some apps do with tilt-shift or radial blur effects, but Hipstamatic’s effect is more customized for faces. Notice, for instance, that it will leave eyes and mouth unaffected, while blurring out the nose and forehead. If the app can’t detect a face, it just switches into a radial blur. The Tinto 1884 lens is definitely intended for close ups, so don’t be afraid to get up close to your subject! Here is an example of the Tinto 1884 Lens with the Black Keys Supergrain film.

While searching through Instagram, we found this fantastic framed collection of Postagram cards on @lacunsolo‘s feed. We reached out to LaDonna to see if we could share her charming story here:
When my husband and I first met and started dating we lived about an hour apart, so we could only spend time together during the weekends. The five weekdays would stretch long but Mike would always send me a Postagram with pictures from our weekend and sweet captions that totally melted my heart. After eleven months of dating, we were married, and my sister used my Postagrams from Mike to create a set of wall hangings to decorate at our reception. These sweet hangings now adorn the wall over our bed, and are a constant reminder of our love story. Most people might think to put these in a typical photo album but these meant so much more to us and we love being able to look at them every day and reminisce. Thanks for making an app that gives us such a unique way to commemorate special days and preserve our memories. We love you Postagram! :)
