I’ve been thinking a lot lately. About everything. The business. Our "craft" and the economics and sustainability of what we do as creatives in this ever changing world. But that’s for a later post perhaps, and I always tend to think too much anyway…

Sometimes the best things in life are simple. Trying to keep things simple or "basic" in our technology-driven times seems to be getting more difficult every year, if not by the minute.

In this case it was a "Cheap Camera" challenge that lead me to shoot with a Canon A2E, a Lens Baby lens, and two rolls of film – the subject of the video below.

It's an interesting read and an interesting video, showing that patience pays off. :)

Yeah, "cheap" $200 dollar lens :p that's what the average consumer pays for a point and shoot i'd guess.

He does have a point, we don't think as much as we did before. I will say this, I bought I think 6 36 exposure rolls, just cause I knew I was going to ruin a couple out of 216 shots and did so a couple of times it wasn't until after developing that I saw my mistakes and eventually all my shots came out decent ( in auto mode at least). Heck I don't even remember the brand, I remember the body was something along like this ( SLR!!!)

Edit: found it:!!! One of first ever cameras that got me to shoot like crazy just cause of the weird form:

Even though the lens is cheap, the point is it isn't a traditional lens, and especially in his field, this is very cheap in comparison to most tilt-shift lenses available today.

Where was the shot of the bird then? I was keen to see his 10 minute shot. Cool video though thanks for the post.

The pictures were added at the end of the video, just as if you were out shooting and had to wait for it to be developed. :)
