Retro-photography is back

The retro- photography is back!

Day at the sea by Malicia

Did you notice that everybody these days is so into analogue photography? Social networks are full of photos that bring you back to the good old days of kindergarten or first grade. It’s actually a faux pas to upload ordinary digital shot 😉

Have everybody gone mad and run around with the old fashion cameras? The answer is not really. The nostalgia for analogue photography caught up with us via smart phones and various apps that help people to capture the unique effect of film, yet in digital realm.

I’m not going to lecture here on different apps however. There are tons of websites that will do that for you and it’s not worth to write it all over again. If you are a total beginner however, you may want to try with those two: Instagram and Hipstamatic.  See which one is more suitable for you, download them via iTunes and start snapping away. That if you have a smart phone.

Myself, I am a fan of Polaroid cameras and for my digital nostalgia I use software that you can install on your computer and play with the photographs via a random effect. True, less control that Instagram but more fun and much closer to the real Polaroid camera. If you like the photos that illustrate this entry or would try your luck at the digital Polaroid making please go to Poladroid and download yourself a copy of the program. It is extremely user-friendly (you drag the photo to the camera on the desktop and it will “develop” them for you). Also like a true Polaroid camera it will accept a batch of 10, after that you will have to re-run the application (or “change the cartridge”).

Confetti by Malicia

It’s middle of February already. I hate when life gets in-between and I have to concentrate on other issues. Quick word of explanation: I am battling an illness and it will be a while before I am on full speed again. It’s nothing life threatening but it is kind of demanding attention since I wasn’t taking care of it for many years (wasn’t aware of it as well but that’s a different story). Basically, if you feel that something is wrong, even if doctors keep telling you otherwise, go and find a doctor that will treat you as a partner, not just a “client”. Trust your gut feeling.

Anyway, enough of complaining. I am going to add new sections to the blog. This will be photography (from time to time I will be uploading series of photos that I take) and promoting music (will be sharing my tips and tricks about promoting artists since the whole last year I did learn a lot). I wanna share what I know and perhaps somebody will learn a thing or two ;).

Today’s post will be kind of best of two worlds: music and photography. There is a fantastic new band I have discovered. They are Canadian trio known as Trailight. Their bassist – Omer Cordell – is also a kick ass photographer and a source of inspiration for me. His work is extremely focused, atmospheric and Omer is known to stick to his own rules. He shoots on film for example and gets better results than most people I know that prefer digital.

Now, Trailight are demoing at this moment. They are present on Facebook and also have their own page, so hit them up, listen to their rehearsals and you can thank me later because those guys will be HUGE in the time to come.

As I mentioned before. Omer and his band inspired me to play with lights and do some photos on my own. They have nothing to do with the band itself, just seeing how hard Omer works, made me pick up my own heavy Canon and hit the streets.  This post is illustrated with shots I came up with.

You know this is a tribute 🙂

Hope you have a great week and I will post soon.
