Hi, my name is Jami and I’m a nerd. It’s okay. I’ve come to terms with it. I have occasional socially awkward moments, scattered clumsiness and almost always crack up at my own cheesy jokes. I have semi-obsessions with things like social media, typography, gadgets, color formulas, grammar, fashion trends and iPhone apps. Does this sound like you? Yes? No? Either way, I’m going to share.
Here are a few nerdy goodies I currently can’t get enough of:
Even if you don’t have an iPhone, you’ve probably heard of Instagram or at least seen your cool Apple friends sharing their photos on Facebook and Twitter. If you do have an iPhone, you’re probably already thoroughly obsessed and know exactly which filters are your go-tos for various photos. Mine are usually Amaro, Rise, X-pro II, Inkwell or Nashville. (I’ve never once used Kelvin.) I love the thoughtful vintage look an otherwise boring snapshot can take on. I love following people I know and people I only wish I knew. I love seeing the day to day crumbs shared here that might not make it to other outlets. I found myself wishing though, that I could easily recreate these looks for other photos not snapped on my phone camera. If you happen to have a copy of Photoshop, you’re in luck! Of course, you can go through and try to recreate the effects with layers upon layers of design and edits OR you can download these pre-recorded actions for each of the Instagram filters from PetaPixel. Voila! Vintage photos on your computer!
