Meet Keepsy at the SF TechCocktail

Hey Bay Area peeps,

Fun news — Keepsy was picked to demo at TechCocktail‘s Startup Showcase this Thursday, 5/26 @6:30 in San Francisco.  There will be a bunch of cool companies showing off their latest, and it looks like there are still a few tickets left.  So come say hello and pick up some swag — maybe even win a free photobook. :-)

Man proposes using Instagram book

All you guys out there, pay attention:

We’ve seen a lot of cool uses for Instagram pics, but we haven’t seen anything quite as creative as what Vishal G. of New York City put together when he decided to pop the question.

His girlfriend Ellora does some stunning work on her iphone, and Vishal decided to honor her talent by putting together a printed book of her work… as an engagement gift.

Naturally, she said “Yes”.  Wouldn’t you?  Congratulations you two!

PS. You should all follow @ida_dactyl on Instagram. As you can see, she’s got skillz:

Photo of the Day: Untitled by @TonyDetroit

If you like the gritty, candid tension of street photography, you’re going to love @tonydetroit‘s work. It’s always inspring to see what photographers can do with post-processing outside of the stock Instagram filter set, but Tony really pushes the limits of iphoneography.

Over the past few months, I have been focusing the majority of my pictures on the Cass Corridor. During that time, I have developed “street cred.” So much in fact, that I am able to walk anywhere I desire. That’s pretty rare. I even can walk by drug hangouts without them raising an eyebrow…”  @tonydetroit

Rare indeed.

Ok, I know you’re wondering when we’re going to get off of our tilt-shift kick. Soon, I promise. But not yet. Not when we keep coming across pics like these from Koji Yokoyama: @yokoyamadelica:

Absolutely great use of tilt-shift. Love the saturation. Be sure to check out the rest of  Koji’s stream on Webstagram.


iPhone4: The Death of the Point-and-Shoot

Great interview with portrait photographer Jack Hollingsworth about the meteoric rise of iPhone4 in the professional photographer’s world:

While he’s not ready to ditch his DSLR quite yet, he’s clearly riding the wave of  new camera and photo processing mobile apps.

In all honesty I’ve only used my own DSLR a few times since upgrading my iPhone4. How about you?

So here in the office we’ve been raving about radial tilt-shift and all the cool things you can do with it. Then today I happily stumbled across this pic by Instagram user @bondavidsf. Wow:

I’ve personally shot this site at least 5 or 6 times and it’s easily one of the most iconic structures in San Francisco. But I’ve never seen a look like this. Behold the depth! Awesome. Click here to view the full-size
