Way Before the Digital Era: My Childhood in Analogue

1

One of the good feelings of analogue photography is the "after". Having your photos printed and checking the results. Well, this trip was no different!

When I was 8 or 9 years old, I had my first international trip. I went to Disneyland with my mom! It was the best possible birthday gift for a kid, right?

On the first day, my mom bought an automatic Canon camera (we don’t remember the model anymore, though) and this camera was responsible for all the printed memories of this trip!

One thing that’s fun to notice is that most of the shots are looking up — like a child sees the world. I find it so cool that it really shows who was responsible for taking the photos — my mom!

Throughout the years, everytime I came across the album with this pictures, I am always amazed and excited to remember those great days! The colors, the characters, the dream come true… All these can be relived with this pictures!

    Nice, My dad used to take photos of us with his Yashica camera during our family trips. I, too, always loved the colors. They are so unique. Sadly, he misplaced all the negatives, and I wonder if the camera is still working now that he gave it to me.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    Experiencing the Rainforest Adventure Experience

    When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.

    Smartphone Film Scanner - It's the camera that matters

    The Smartphone Film Scanner comes in handy for digitalizing negatives. The resulting picture quality, however, is heavily dependent on the camera used. As somehow expected, the photos drastically benefit from using a good digital camera instead of a smartphone's build in one.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Democratic Eye (A Tribute to William Eggleston)

    William Eggleston is one of the most important contemporary master and pioneer of color photography. In this article I write a tribute to his particular democratic way of looking around. For him "Nothing was more important or less important", and everything is worthy of being photographed. Again, he is fond of the dear old film; he said that "I don't think much about the digital world, because I am in the analog world!". Read more after the jump!
