Top 25 Photography Innovations in August

From Shipping Container Cameras to AR Video Magnets

— August 17, 2019 — Tech
The top August 2019 photography ideas include a number of experimental projects, quality-enhancing accessories and retro designs that offer an alternative to mobile photography.

While there are some incredibly advanced smartphone cameras on the market, as well as countless apps to enhance one's photographic skills, there's a renewed interest in charming, low-tech image-capturing devices. Some of the best examples of this are creations from custom Polaroid analog camera makers, the KODAK Mobile Film Scanner and the Alulu Camera, which sets itself apart as a sustainable instant camera that uses receipt paper for printing. A large-scale, fully functional camera and working darkroom was also set up in the UK out of a shipping container as part of a community-centered portrait project.
