This New Nostalgic Photography Trend is Scary

When is really bad good? Let the Featured Image and companion answer. I never imagined that Millennial-generation nostalgia would make blurry photography a thing. Newfound fondness for pics produced by naught-decade point-and-shoot digital cameras focuses (honestly, no pun intended) on imperfections they produce.

Well, hell, I am a master photographer now. Sign me up for the big bonus payout from the Instagram gallery of art and artifacts, because I got a boatload (figuratively) of blurry, grainy, flawed photos languishing to be seen and cooed over.

While many were taken on 1990s-2000s point-and-shooters, the pair picked for this post come from interchangeable lens dSLR Canon EOS 20D on Halloween night 19 years ago. Yeah, 2004. Vitals for the first: f/5.6, ISO 400, 3/10 sec, 135mm; 7:24 p.m. EST. The other: f/4, ISO 100, 1/2 sec, 47mm; 7:17 p.m.
