What is Analog Photography?

Analog photography is a method of capturing images on film, paper or metal plates coded with chemicals that react to light. Polaroid instant camera used precisely such method.

Analog photography is how all photography used to be before the invention of a digital camera.

Fuzz, not pixels! Photos shot on old-school cameras and processed in a lab using specific techniques are very special. Unlike their digital counterparts they often look "dreamy", especially when taken with Lo-Fi cameras like the ones from Lomography and/or with an experimental film like red-scale cellulose. Under the microscope, the dots that make images are tiny grains - each a little different.
