A modern image of a vintage camera, the 1945 Mercury II, by Newark, Ohio, photographer Gregory Sheka (Instagram user dzeek).
"Part of the reason why I like Instagram is that it offers great filters to instantly apply for great effects," he says. At the same time, he notes, it doesn't limit photographers from "going outside the box, so to speak, and utilizing other great tools used in the photography industry."
Sheka opted for a bright, vivid look with a touch of old-world style to show a camera that introduced the "hot shoe" accessory mount to the camera industry.
