    Getting back on topic, I wonder how much film the Holga's and Lomos ate that where fresh film that kept companies going, or old expired films bought for cheap. I am the first to say that I do not know the answer.

    so you gain some weight, wear high waisted pants, (pulled halfway up your chest)
    a wide tie, probably spats, a hat, half chewed cigar in your mouth and greased back hair
    when you go out with your camera ?
    that is the weegee look i am talking about, not just taking photographs with a press camera.

    seeing your profile picture i wouldn't imagine you being
    able to pull the look i was talking about off
    if you can and do pull it off... more power to ya ...

    I am curious about that as well. I know I personally got back into film via a Diana F+, which renewed my love of photography in general. And I know that over the course of the past two years, I've experimented, wasted film, enjoyed films I'd never have used before and I did all of this without being hip or cool or anything. I am just a man who loves photography and the escape it gives me.

    And I'd be willing to bet that this forum and forums like it are full of people who've been shooting the same "hip" gear that has come and gone many times as fashion as well as function.

    To me, Hipster is no different then Hippy or Preppie. It's just a word used to describe people who are at that moment in time doing a certain thing, whatever that thing is. Has the hipster culture helped keep film alive, I think yes.

    Will people waste more precious films as time passes? Yep. Will some of them learn and grow and become photographers who live and breathe the art of photography as a result of trying it as an accessory? Yep.

    All the rest of us can do is do what we love and share our love with others and be ourselves.

    To this day, I still see what one might call Hipsters out and about and I have NEVER seen one with a camera. I am the one with the camera, me and my friend. And the few film photographers I do see when I am shooting or whatever are usually older gentlemen who have a certain look that they probably have had for a very long time.

    and annoying you because you were busy and didnt want to be chatty

    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."
