248/365: vintage camera

blog090915_vintage-camera

I am not a hater when it comes to digital photography. I credit the digital revolution with my own artistic career. Honestly, I never would have taken the time or the risks to discover my own vision with film; I wouldn’t have been able to afford it!

Digital photography gave me the freedom to explore and to fail. It was OK to take 200 photos – just to see what would happen – and then throw them away. It still is.

Nonetheless, I wax a little poetic when I see vintage cameras. There is a beauty to the object that makes me feel nostalgic, appreciative, and itchy – like I want to go buy some film and just see what happens.

Back to the sweet life with a full afternoon shooting Bistro Meringues in the studio. I did a lot of close-ups, product photos for the website. But I couldn’t resist creating this ode to bygone elegance: a still life set in my grandmother’s gravy boat.
