The actual shooting however, forces me to rely on my eyes, and thus far has helped me see my photos completely differently. I shoot what's pleasing to the eye, not worrying about the "mechanics" of my shot. Some pics come out great and some are eh, but that's been the beauty of the whole deal for me. The digital age has killed the "accidental photo", because deleting pics on cameras now is easier than taking pics. By deleting pictures though, we miss some of our greatest moments. Sometimes the group of girls in the foreground isn't the most interesting part, instead its the little kid picking his nose in the back. That's what the blind camera has allowed me to do; enjoy these random moments in time. They're not the tightest photos, but they also don't seem staged and fake.
I have to upload all of my pics, it's the only way I can see them, so I get an interesting collection. It's a return to old photography, minus the hassle of developing film, the perfect crime. And for the most part I don't even have to alter my photos (minus a few saturation tinkerings). Don't get me wrong, I still love taking real photos with functioning cameras, but the blind cam is a nice departure from the norm. Not a bad look, definitely worth a try. B EZ bostonia.
