The Hype on Polaroids
Most of us in this day and age would have probably known much about polaroids and how they are really used and what their uses are for, and many of us would have probably had one once in our lives. Apparently, a lot of us today believe that polaroids are exactly the same as instant photography, which we all obviously know is incorrect or is no way right, since polaroids are in no way instant. All of us, regardless of our age or the year we were born, have had special memories with this polaroid, and have all shared this common interest on it, even when our generation now has been going through the new and innovated instant photographs which are popular these days and are widely used these days for faster use. It can somehow be too overwhelming and much of a happiness to see people get so hyped over polaroids despite how old they are and how not that instant they actually are to use, despite the many innovations and inventions being made nowadays that can just be produced in an instant, which is somewhat surprising and unrealistic.
A lot of made up and even real stories have been passed over from generation to generation about these polaroids and photography itself. The start of it all was back in the year nineteen forty three, when this very loving father tried to photograph his own little daughter as they were trying to enjoy their family vacation, when suddenly his little girl asked why he cant let her see her photo right after he took it for her. The myth or the story would then become later on a huge inspiration that was used by one of the most amazing and popular innovators in the whole history of mankind, and this will be the reason why the technology that we enjoy today is what it is today. This inventor was known to be very persuasive about actually being able to achieve that goal of his, which was to give to the world the instant photography that they will surely like, and he actually was obviously able to pursue that dream.
These polaroids were somehow not that enough especially for those who seek more improvements on their photography experience, and people kept on asking for more from the innovators and inventors. Unfortunately, the company that made this polaroid saw their own creator as their asset and also their liability. The CEO back then was too particular about imperfections, making the company struggle a lot because of some unmet demands that they could not possibly be able to achieve at that time. After the original creator left, the company somehow also lost their own sense of imagining finely how photography should develop through the years.
