Just for fun I tried a cell phone photo of Tasha this morning by the dim light of a nearby window; the rest of the room was dark. I didn't expect much but, when I finally looked at the picture, it reminded me of some of the very early efforts in the history of photography.. a Daguerreotype, glass plates, or something. I stripped out the color and darkened the image a bit. I kind of like it. I've also been intrigued lately by the growing interest amongst cell phone and other digital camera users in making their images funky-old looking. Hipstamatic is but one example of nostalgic image software, giving iPhone images a '50s – '60s retro look. Fun, but is it old-fashioned?
