Is it old-fashioned? -Yes!! Am I fascinated about this? -Yes!! First day of the three day workshop on photography we spent with Spencer, who took os back to the old analog cameras.
It was all about knowing how the old analog cameras worked, which is basically in the same way as the modern digital camera, but you don’t have a mini computer to figure out the numbers for you. The terms aperture, shutter speed and focus suddenly gets a whole new meaning, and you actually start to begin to understand what they mean, and how they each work separately and together.
The day took us through an introduction, out on the streets to take photos, and as the last part, processing the negatives so that they would be ready for next week, were we will take them to the dark room.
