iPhone Only Assignment

All images © Valery Rizzo

I just shot my first iPhone only travel story for the Food Issue of Hipstamatic's Snap Magazine. I am editing it now. It was all shot with the Hisptamatic App on an iPhone 5s. 
I brought my DSLR along but found myself shooting with my iphone least for this assignment.

The images above were taken at Table on Ten in Bloomville, New York, one of my top picks for staying and eating in the Catskills.

Retail For Lease, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 2014.

Walls and doorways like this are part of the charm of Williamsburg. It is though being slowly taken over and homogenized by luxury condos and corporate store fronts, changing the neighborhoods character.
