The Hype on Polaroids
If you try to ask all of the human beings on this planet if they ever know what a polaroid is, chances are, majority of them do and most of them would have probably even had one once. 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. Many of us would agree to the fact that everyone has their own memories with polaroids, and everyone has this common share of bond that polaroids were the reason of, even despite the great innovations made in our world today through the use of smart phones and such that causes everything to be too instant. It can somehow be an amazing fact to see that people still want to make use of something this old and antique, even with the many people trying to honor and glorify the instant inventions our world has created today for our lives to be better and more convenient- it can somehow be refreshing to see people get all amazed at polaroids.
There have been a lot of myths and legends and other stories told about photography and about polaroids. The very first story was that when during the year nineteen forty three, there was this father who tried to videograph his three year old daughter while they were having their family vacation, and hse somehow asked a very simple and innocent questions, which was why she cant instantly see the picture right away. 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.
