After reading articles about the place of smartphone amateur and professional photography, particularly with reference to apps such as Hipstamatic, today I set up a small exercise in the garden.  All I needed for this was my DSLR with a macro lens,  an antique photograph, an eight inch prism, and sunshine. I took a number of images however the objective was to use multiple simple techniques rather than to find a perfect shot.

Once I had taken a photo that I was satisfied with, I uploaded my chosen picture to my smartphone, applied a Hipstamatic filter to it, and finally printed it out on an Instax Fujimilm portable printer. (The kind where you watch the photo develop).

What could we call this fusion style of photography?
