The Hype on Polaroids
Every person in this planet will most likely know what a polaroid exactly is and what its uses are and how somehow not that convenient it is. Sometimes, people think polaroids can be synonymous to instant photography, especially for the younger people, which is why it can be wrong sometimes because people think these are two similar things. We all have our own special Polaroid memories back in the day, despite our age or the differences that we have as people, we all share this common memory back then, even when all we know now are those instant photographs that can be taken with our smart phones. It is actually very much surprising to see people get so amazed and still give so much appreciation for something as old as a polaroid, even with the vast inventions that have made life easier and more instant nowadays, it is somewhat refreshing to see people appreciate old and antique stuff that do not really cater to the instant needs of modern civilization.
There have been a lot of myths and legends and other stories told about photography and about polaroids. 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.
Although apparently the use of these polaroids were not exactly enough for the people since people would always want more and would always look for improvements. The creator of this polaroid and the whole concept of photography was seen by his employees in his company as not only an asset but also a liability as well. 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 creator retired from his work, the company somehow lost the edge to envision a good technology when it comes to photography.
