I HAVE A small collection of vintage cameras that are often described in photography manuals as amateur or 'point & shoot'. Amongst them, there is a Kodak Instamatic 33. An easy-loading 126 film cartridge camera produced between 1968 and 1973. I particularly love the family photos my Mum made with this camera in the 1970s. The ‘errors' of composition and exposure are my favourites. They form the beginning of my fascination with the ‘snapshot' and my own examination of the endless rules that bookend the question ‘how can I take a better photograph?'.

Currently, I have posted about my Lubitel 166U with example photographs. More posts about other cameras coming soon.
