“Since the introduction of digital technology, the relationship between camera and photographer has altered dramatically. Speed and accessibility have come at the expense of mystery, intimacy and tactility – qualities exclusive to analogue photography.” – Lu Sisi
Winner of the Best Video award in the Budget Category of the New York TV Program and Film Festival in 2011, Digital Analogue is a two-minute stop motion short film made by Lu Sisi, a Visual Communication graduate from the Glasgow School of Art.
The video was created by meticulously stitching together over six thousand still photos of various vintage cameras and photography equipment, and is set to a track that is a composite of recorded sounds made by analogue cameras. The result is an eye-catching and wonderful mashup of the past and the present.
"I’m an analogue photographer but I’m old school in the sense that I don’t believe in cropping," Mary Ellen Mark shares in this video by Seaport Museum New York. "I believe you have to make the picture in the camera."

Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
In this article I’m going to review the LomoKino's key features, show you how to load the film, and share some tips on shooting and editing a movie. I will also show you a short stop motion movie that I made with this camera.

Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.
