As much as I love my film cameras, I have to admit that though I often carry one (well, most of the time actually), There are times when it’s just more convenient to use the damn thing that’s always in your hand: The iPhone
In fact it’s the only digital camera I use currently, and I find I use it too much. In fact I don’t like to make photographs with it. I find it very awkward to hold, awkward to release the ‘shutter’. In short, I don’t like it.
It’s just that sometimes it’s in my hand when I walk outside and then I see something like this:Impossible not to snap!
In the end I quite like the results, tweaked with Snapseed to turn it into to a grainy contrasty film lookalike.
In fact, I don’t dislike digital – you can make it look any way you like – I just despise most digital cameras. From iPhone to DSLR, all of them!
Well, not all…. something like the Leica M-D would be fine. But there’s a small problem, the bloody price tag.
Thanks for reading!
