I was growing tired of the extreme convenience that digital photography had to offer.
You kind of forget how much technology you’re holding in your hands when you can just twist a few knobs on a camera and slam your finger down on the shutter release, and then magically, your captured-moment-of-time appears instantly before you… I don’t know about you, but that’s just a little too convenient.
Ironically, I took the above photo with my iPhone…
I like using these old cameras to remind myself of what it was like taking photos back in the day. And by back in the day I mean the 70s and 80s when this little camera was around.
Plus! Now I’ll look totally cool walking around with an old camera. People will be all like, ‘Hey! That dude’s totally cool! He’s got an old camera! Heck yeah, he’s awesome, he must be a hipster! Woo yeah! Hipsters! WOOOOO!’
…and so on.
