Pick a camera…

…and shoot only with it for a few weeks.  As an example, Mark O’Brien has been shooting primarily with an Olympus Trip 35 for the past month.  The more one uses the same camera, the better the results, since you get more comfortable with it — more attuned to its quirks, and aware of its possibilities.


The Trip 35 is a fairly compact camera, and needs no batteries.  The auto-exposure is controlled by a ring of selenium cells around the lens.  ISO speeds go from 25 to 400.  Four distance settings.  Two shutter speeds 1/40 sec and 1/200 (camera controlled).    Jim Grey has a nice review up, and is one of many on this amazing camera that has a deserved cult following.
