New technology is boring, let’s go retro

I’ve been noticing that a lot of the ‘hip’ photography in the past couple years has been retro film style. Now that digital SLRs are ubiquitous, they’re boring (to the arterati, or, er, whatever you call them). I guess it’s similar to the vinyl vs. CD divide. I think you get a lot of interesting colors out of the analog process. Here’s a flickr photo pool which has some pretty cool film photos, along with a lot of bad ones. Watch out for the hipster-favorite polaroids!

We have fun and megapixels bore the shit out of us
