Recently I discovered a box with slides and negatives. 'Real' pictures from a pre-digital age. I have to admit it took me a long time to move on to digital, and although I love all the possibilities of modern photography (and photoshop!) seeing these old pictures makes me feel slightly melancholic. (I used to have an ancient 6x6cm camera, with a little window on the top. Heavy as a rock, but so much fun.)
Have any of you seen Scarlett Johansson learning 'real photography' with a mechanic camera, developing her photos in a dark room in Woody Allen's 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'. I don't know... I love the simplicity of digital photography and really don't miss all the toxins from the dark room. So I'm happy with the new ways. But what about you? Do you find non-digital photography more artistic, more worthy than digital? Might any of you maybe even take pictures 'the old way'?
Just for the fun of it, here a 6x6cm self-portrait from pre-digital times. I promise I won't bother you with more!
