Polaroid: the camera that travels back in the time
Considered the progresses of the electronic technology, the company producers of cameras moved their attention towards the digital cameras, but are still famous and spreaded the Polaroid, the cameras with film dedicated to who prefers to take pictures in the old way.
The Polaroid allows to keep alive our memories, by printing them istantly in the moment of the shot. This is its dominant characteristic which makes it different compared with the last generation digital cameras, which really often leave us without memories.
We take pictures all the time and even with a good quality, but it becomes ever more difficult to see them while flipping through an album because they remain closed in a digital memory card. There are things that even though the progress and the technology remain loving to us, the Polaroid is between them.
In reality, in the marketplace there are even some models of Polaroid that represent the meeting between the digital world and the prompt-analogue one: they allow to save the pictures in the memory card and to print only the ones that we prefer.
How to use an analogue Polaroid camera?
Even though it is really easy to use, the Polaroid needs attention about the printed film after the shot. The printed vintage picture has to be protected from the light, this because the colours don’t appear right after the shot, but after around 5 minutes and if it is exposed to the light, they can’t come out like they should.
Another thing that we don’t have to absolutly do is to shake the printed picture because it will create completely blurry colours. Basically, the Polaroid is really loved for its ability to create natural shots durable in the time.
“The eyes are open but don’t always see.
By the way we don’t only see with the eyes. When I take a picture, all the senses feel the same. Afterwards is the invisible that remains.”
