MOKUM AS MUSE!
We’ve recently fallen in love and taken inspiration from the streets of this Old World City. The cobblestone walkways and mesmerizing network of canals make the land of Amsterdam our muse for this month’s First Friday. The Jordaan HipstaPak will highlight the picturesque tones of the brick houses and bring a mood that is sure to complement the mellow lifestyle and cafe culture. Walk the streets of Jordaan and get to shooting. VINCENT LENSInspired by the great artists of Amsterdam, expand your palette with this cool contrast lens.RIJKS FILMAdd some subtle painterly strokes with a circular texture and a touch of central focus from this fine film.

We’re Off To Sweden For This First Friday!

Södermalm HipstaPak
While walking the streets of Stockholm we were inspired by the young creatives of Södermalm for this month’s First Friday.

Bruno Lens
Warm up with this finely crafted lens. Made in Sweden.

Gotland Film
Add some texture to your prints with this rough film.

and in Hipstamatic Classic, it also includes:

Triple Crown Flash
This flash is pretty sweet – it actually takes the original image and re-blends it at the end, giving some pretty cool results with heightened contrast and details that may have been originally lost with some of our more intense filters. Meaning it’s great to add on top of all sorts of old favorite combos.
