Have you ever had the feeling that you were somewhere and you were like: “This was a little strange, but at the same time pretty good”. Well, I had that feeling after I watched Hail, Caesar! in the cinema last weekend. I already heard some stories about the producers of the movie. They make slightly different movies.

You can imagine that I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that Vintage meets Present was about to be taken literally.

Or…the time when you used the self-timer button for delayed action shutter release to create those very professional and spontaneous pictures that still make you proud. “No this picture was not made by a professional. Shutter buttons for life.” The shutter release button time is still going strong, because why wait for someone else to make a picture, when your shutter release button skills are still going strong.
