Hipster Art

Hipster art. It’s really quite easy. You see it everywhere. Take a nice thin font, center it over an image that is abstract, add a colored reversed out shape behind the text, and bam. The possibilities are endless. You have yourself a new record album… or website graphic. Crazy, right?

Whenever I travel on planes, I always bring my Leica D‑LUX 5 with me and have it easily available, so I can pull it out quick and shoot out the airplane windows. For this particular example of boredom, I took a few aerials photos I’ve shot over the past few years, and played with their toning. Then it was all about experimenting with tonal adjustments and overlays until you find the right effect that works for you.
