iPhoneographer of the Day – Erika Moretto (Otteromakire)

Ericka is a iPhoneographer with an eye for creating frames in her work. The major tool for this effect is her beloved Hipstamtic app.  You can’t blame anyone for using Hipstamatic, it is one of the most advanced and popular toy camera apps out there. Eirka is a master at combining Hipsta Prints with other apps for that extra touch.
