Being an owner of three analogue rangefinder cameras (35mm, 6x7 and a 6x6 folding) I would really like to be an analogue polaroider...
as a matter of fact I need to be in touch with the world with my iPhone that I use to have fun shooting (pardon me all open minded analogue purists like me) my polaroids too!! (did you notice I wrote it without capital letter?)
I thank Miki for the foot and the nice idea of the phone when in Budapest.
and I agree...
PS. I agree also with Man Ray!
I agree with the inspiration thing... ;-)
in fact I don't know if the selection I made for this Collection is of the most beautiful and photographically perfect images... but of those that inspired me something peculiar.
Nice to see that there are not two opposite poles on it... just personal opinions :-)
thanks for all the images sharing
- digital is unexpensive when shooting :-) hurrah!!! This gives great opportunities to everybody.
- ShakeIt app takes some time to instantly develop your photo so you must wait for the right moment before shooting... and the results are not user controllable.
Analogue obliges you not to waste film. You should have a good photographic eye to get fine results with less shooting as Thomas said.
Analogue Polaroid has a finer look, you get a wonderful paper in your hand (priceless!), and it's classic.
Being said that I agree with Nicoletta: everyone feels differently and has his own idea of photography, what moves his guts and what not.
Thomas: did you hope my photo is not digital because you like it and think it would deserve to be a Classic "real" Polaroid? I would appreciate that hope :-)
When promoting the exhibition I had a talk with someone believing we shouldn't show real and mocked-up Polaroids together. So we decided to label them and let people distinguish between.
This has been appreciated by those who love real Polas and feel an itch when seeing digital imitation that I wouldn't call "shit".
