    Hello forum members :smile:

    I was born when digital was out for the consumer and I did not consciously experience Analogue. Yet I have been photographing analogue for fun for a few years by now.

    Personally, I started photographing analogue because I saw videos of people who still did this, or who also recently photographed analogue. Furthermore, I have always been interested in retro technology such as retro computers and vinyl.

    I would like to pass on the experience of an old analog camera to everyone who is willing to give it a shot.

    That is why I had put down an old analog camera with a manual at various locations in Leiden. Anyone who saw the camera can pick it up and take pictures according to the short, pictographic manual.

    This seemed like a good idea, many people I come across show intrigue in the typical old-fashioned form and operation of analog cameras. Sometimes when I walk around with a camera people look up and ask questions. Personally, I think that is wonderful, I like to tell you more and let people discover the device.
    I do not stand by the camera, but walk away to take photos myself. Most of the time it is a guess as to what will be on a roll of film.

    The camera:

    The (handmade) manual:

    I have already developed a roll from one day and several more have been send to development. I have been doing this for several weeks with great success.

    Perhaps some of you find it interesting to follow this? I will keep you informed of further dates.

    One of the locations in my mind is the Van der Werffpark. The locations should not be too crowded but should be photogenic. I would like to hear advice from you about locations.

    Several photos of the camera in-situ:

    I like the idea, especially that - at least so far - no one has swiped the camera! I do wonder how it would work in that regard here in the US.bandit: Interesting that folks are willing to take a picture with no real hope of ever seeing the image....:cool:
