If My Cameras Were Ball Players

The NBA season is close to its culmination, with Oklahoma, as of the moment, waiting for the winner of the Miami-Boston series. In this spirit, let me introduce you to my team of cameras, in basketball style.

Off the bench.

He is young and vibrant. Capable of making consecutive shots: at small forward: Oktamat.

He is light as a feather. Feared for his wide-open threes: at point guard: Vivitar UWS.

No-look passes and no-look shots are his thing. At shooting guard: Supersampler.

A veteran who gets the job done. At power forward: Taxona.

He makes only a few points, but those few are always big. A fan-favorite, at center: Holga.

Now! Meet the starting five!

At the point. In his fourth season, a prolific scorer, do-it-all: Diana Mini!

At small forward. Deadly in all ranges: Olympus XA!

At power forward. People say he is too fast for his size, he does not think twice: Nikon EM!

At center. Our 360 slam dunk champion. Towering head above shoulders: Spinner 360!

And to complete the line up, at shooting guard, the Michael Jordan of Lomography. The all-time great: LC-A+ RL!

Now that was fun! What about you? How would you introduce your cameras?

    I make personas for my cameras. At one point, they happen to come to life as Sims! From then on, I never looked back.
