Superstar Seth Green is perhaps best known for his work on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” three “Austin Powers” films, “Party Monster,” “Family Guy,” and his Emmy Award-winning, stop-motion-animated series “Robot Chicken.”
What many fans might not know is that Green, who will soon appear on-camera in the upcoming feature “The Identical,” the upcoming miniseries “Delete,” and on fall’s Fox comedy series “Dads,” is quite the pro behind the camera as well, as his online photo album demonstrates. Green opened up about his Hipstamatic obsession and expounded on 12 unique photo opportunities that made him go zoom.
How did you start using the Hipstamatic app?
I sound like an ad for them, but it’s easy to take a great picture if you have the digital quality of the camera on your smartphone and then you have an app like that, that lets you use any lens and any film and any flash that you want.
Before Instagram, Hipstamatic was just a photo app and it allowed you to process the pictures that you took as if they were photographed under these specific conditions and circumstances, and it was completely different than applying an after-photo filter to it. That just does its best to approximate it, but somehow when Hipstamatic captures the photo, it adds all those elements as if it was shot under the conditions that you select. Then there’s a huge camera bag that’s developed over the last four to five years where they’ve added a lot of plug-ins for it and they’re all really inexpensive.
