Transcript of Hipster Photos

So you
want to take a What are the
marks of a
hipster retro photo? Before
we get started... Using vintage film effects Do you know what a hipster is? photo... Hipster dishevelled
appearance fashionably unfashionable thick,
glasses converse
sneakers skinny
jeans ironic
tee-shirt clashing
clothes retro
photos Especially retro photos (well for now, anyway) Shallow depth of field A few signs
that someone
might be a
hipster: Making mundanity 'interesting' Using profound captions This is achieved by choosing a large aperture setting on your bridge or SLR camera.

This means that a only a small part of your field will be in focus.

The rest of your shot will be blurred, bringing focus to your subject.

An ordinary carton of juice becomes... well, less ordinary. (often using a very ordinary subject) Of course, you could always cheat... Here's a hastily edited (& fake) example of shallow depth of field not in focus in focus Magic? Not really. More like Photoshop. Select the part of the image you want to keep in focus using the marquee tool.
Copy (and save in a new image).
Go to Filter > Blur > Lens Blur.
Blur your whole image. Paste the selected part from earlier back in place. If you want a more accurate result, you can also save a selected quick mask, change the radius and make a few other alterations. For detailed (and pretty helpful) instructions, see
http://www.photoshopessentials.com/photo-effects/depth-of-field/ Shallow depth of field Making mundanity 'interesting' Single colour saturation Hipsters often achieve this by using... & Single colour saturation This may be a very ordinary bowl of fruit, but hark! Only the apple has any colour!

This effect is used by hipsters to pull meaning and profundity out of something run of the mill. And it's quite effective. (everything's grey apart from one thing) Once again, it's not magic. It's just Photoshop. Using the Polygonal Lasso Tool, cut out the object you want to select and paste it into a new file.
Go into Filter > Blur > Field Blur and blur the image.
Go into Image > Adjustments > Desaturate and remove the colour.
Go back to the second file (with the cut-out part).
Go to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and remove the saturation from all but one colour. (Here, I left Reds and Magentas, but reduced their Saturation to -50.)
Copy the coloured object and paste it back into the original (now-blurred) image. Voila! Anyone can do this one. deep! You can make your own! First, find a photo. Pretty much any photo will do, but you could make it greyscale or sepia for extra effect. Crop it or rotate it in a jaunty way. Either look up Google for deep quotes or make one up! Good topics include loneliness, poetry, philosophy and fashion. Stick the
quote in the
corner or rotate
it. Make it into a shape.
You could use an unusual font, but
it would be even more hipsterawesome if you used an old, boring font in an ironic way.

Rad. Using profound captions Hipsters often add quotes or captions to their photographs to make them more striking. Using vintage film effects One of the hallmarks of hipster photography is its extreme cross-processing effects and its overuse of Photoshop brushes and filters. What's that? To emulate old fashioned film cameras and processing, some hipsters layer on colour and light effects (including sun flares) to their photos. How do they do that? The easiest way to do this is through using smartphone and tablet apps like Instagram and Hipstamatic. These apps replicate film and lighting effects as photos are being taken. It's harder on Photoshop but you have a lot more control It's more complicated than apps, but you can: So there you have it. To hipsterize the hell out of your photos, you need to shorten the depth of field, use profound captions and smother your pictures in lighting and old-school film effects.

And all this can be done from the comfort of your laptop screen, so you don't even need to go outside. Exemplar. Once upon an edited
photograph... Desaturate, oversaturate or change to sepia.
Use filters (including blur, sharpen and 'add noise').
Use brushes to add layers such as lens flares, dust motes and other light effects. Here's an example. deep!
