There's no doubt that we're all snapping a ton of photos these days. And nearly all of them are taken from our phones. Not that there's anything wrong with sharing an awesome shot on Instagram, but there's something to be said for an actual physical photograph. It's a real world reminder of a moment captured in time. One that can be passed around the dinner table or propped up on your desk. Luckily, there's been a resurgence in instant cameras which produce photos that develop right before your eyes. And the old school appeal—simple shots with no filters, hashtags or comments—is appealing to a whole new generation of photographers.
