I have to be honest, I now have a growing collection of cameras. Mostly analog film cameras. Perhaps the cheapest and I have to say one of my cherished cameras is the Canon QL17 GIII. It's my first rangefinder that's why it's dear to me.
Shooting film and messing around analog cameras and not to mention pulling my lightmeter in and out of my pocket are just part of it. Taking a photo is simple, really. But making a photo, that's the hard part. All the complexities doesn't happen as you wind the film, turn the aperture ring, or check the light. It happens when you start thinking, when you see light and try to understand it. It's your brain doing the work, making the photograph right before you actually fire the shutter. A camera as minimal as many film cameras creates a complex mind.
I wasn't really into photography that much. I just wanted to document me and my fiance's adventures. But soon, I found street photography. Before I know it, I got hooked and convinced myself to pull myself out from digital photography, and understand how to may photographs through analog photography.
