What about analog photography in the present time? Are we still experiencing it?

Nowadays different smartphone applications and computer software have put effort to emulate the effects. They introduced different filters and layers to produce the analog pictures. These developers make the photography incident different from the recent one. As the matter of fact, nothing is more deliberate than the original and real ones.

Beyond shadow of a doubt, for a spectacular analog picture, photographers must concentrate on the object and pay attention more to take a good picture. For example, the rolls of 35mm film are able to capture a limited number of images with every shot counts. In addition, artistic effects could be produced in analog photography naturally. For instance, light leaks overexposures, vignettes that are perfectly more authentic and attractive ones. Although there are a lot of benefits for digital photo taking, experiencing analog photography has some wonderful features as well.
