Crappy Camera Photos

Crappy Camera Photos: the art of taking good photographs with “crappy cameras;” in particular, “crappy digital cameras,” with the definition being any “old” digital camera with a sensor size of less than 2 megapixels.

Photography is all about light and bending it to the photographer’s will. This is all the more true with the original generation of digital cameras, before they came into their own as a legitimate replacement for analogue, film SLR cameras. By comparison to today’s standards, a 20 year old, or even 15 year old, digital camera is archaic, with poor light sensing and low resolution. My goal is to collect these cameras and show that with the proper eye, attention to detail, and even some post-processing, a legitimate photograph can still be taken with them and turned into art.
