During a week in Paris, my boyfriend and I were absolutely delighted to stumble upon an old school photobooth!
During a week visit to Paris we stumbled upon a hidden gem in the center of the city: a foto automat photobooth!
I have never been so excited as when we found this beauty in the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. I didn’t realize that there were any in the city and I’d given up hope of ever having any old school photo booth photos with my boyfriend… so we (im)patiently waited for the couple in front of us to take their photos and watched as they (im)patiently waited for their photos and then it was our turn.
Waiting for the photos was so much fun, I literally danced around the machine in anticipation and when they finally printed, the photos were wet and we had to wave them around for them to dry – I loved that they were authentically printed in the old fashioned way.
The result: an amazing set of photos that are both spontaneous and natural and so much fun! The best four Euros that we spent on our whole visit!! And the best part? My boyfriend suggesting that we hold out the cameras! It wasn’t even me!
Side note: After doing a little research when we got back I found out that there are more of them around Paris and one was even closer to our apartment along the canal, I’m a little sad we didn’t find more but I’m looking forward to searching them out the next time that we visit.
You know that place you always picture in your head when you think of your dream holiday destination? That was Machu Picchu for me. Last May I decided to go for it and embarked on a two-and-a-half-week trip around Peru with my boyfriend.
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!
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

With a Lomo'Instant Camera and a Splitzer, you can get absolutely funny and creative images. I took it to the highest level and exposed my shots from 4 to 8 times! What you'll see next is an impressive mix of colors, textures, places and people captured in a very surreal way!
"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."
Niccolò Turetta started taking photographs on film at a young age. Looking for tips on making better images, he stumbled upon the website and eventually joined the community as a motivation to further improve his craft. Let's all welcome our newcomer of the week from Torreglia, Italy, nickt!
I recently found a roll of XR Redscale 50-200 film lying around in my drawer and decided to reignite my passion for embracing the weird and unexpected results that film can bring. I shot random doubles around the streets of Soho and was rather delighted with the results.
Remember C.S. Muncy? He's the New York-based freelance photojournalist who gave the New Petzval Lens a spin. Now he's got his hands on the Lomo LC-A 120 and we stumbled upon his detailed review on The Photo Brigade website. Here's an excerpt!
Ever since the Pixelstick came out, I've been dying to try it out. This past week, I finally got my chance!

Take a moment and have a look at these priceless pics!
