It was a season of change and trying new things, so on a whim I thought I'd try doing something a little different from my usual realm: disposable camera photography. Many photographers turn their noses to disposable cameras, and granted, they aren't the highest of quality. Sometimes they are blurry or not in focus, ad some brands are better than others (I learned that fairly quickly). They are also bizarrely more expensive than I would have imagined since everyone considers them to be "cheap." However, something about that old, eclectic look or the appearance of the photo being taken decades earlier even though it was taken just last week is quite intriguing. Plus, if you can take a really, really nice shot on a disposable camera, then you can take good shots on virtually anything, so I decided to challenge myself and give it a try.
Some a are a little off the horizon line. Some of them are a bit blurry. Some of them have a lot of grain. But these photographs are pure and honest, and that is what I love about them. They were taken in a quick moment with the hope that they turned out well and with the surprise of seeing them later. You don't know how they are going to look. You don't know what colors will show. It's like a little surprise when you get them back and a little moment of reliving. These are pure, honest moments, captured forever and unedited. These are raw and in their most organic form, and I love that about them. This was a fun little project that I will have to revisit sometime in the future.
