An Evening on the Fixed Gear with #VSCOcam

I’ve seen the letters VSCO pop up quite a bit lately and the photos that have been related are catching my eye. I would be the first to admit that I’m not very good at post processing my work and am open to any help I can get. Mostly of the time my adjustments consist of making a few slider adjustments and occasionally working within the NIK plug-in.

My initial search of VSCO brought me to their iPhone app which I had no idea about, but was very excited to try out. The app is free, but like so many other apps, it offers plenty of in-app purchases. I downloaded the app and gave it a try on a few of my existing images and was quickly hooked.

I like iPhone photography as much as I enjoy breaking out the M9 or any other gear for that matter, it’s just a different tool. The biggest difference is that I get to play around with the images immediately after taking them and share them.

After downloading and playing with a few images I bought a few film packs and was on my way. At this point my only experience with VSCOcam is extremely limited, but I have already seen enough to keep my interest and look into the desktop versions for Lightroom.
