After reading a metric ton of article from actual photographers about VSCO Cam, i decided I was being intentionally mulish about it and downloaded the app.
I have to say, I really don’t hate it. It offers a nice mix of usability and editing options, love than I can spot meter in the app to hold highlights or shadow, and the filters are subtle. I was playing with it this morning
I was able to meter my face and still keep the lens flare, that is pretty impressive on a phone. There are pretty decent editing tools on the app aside from the filters AND all the filters are user editable. If you are an Instawhore you can share straight to your Johns with a quick click. (You didn’t think I was going to go through this entire post and NOT base Instagram did you?) also to Twitter, FB but not Flickr, which kind of sucks.
It would never replace my DSLR, but for a phone it’s not bad.
There, you may all start pointing and laughing at me. 😯
