Film Disposables #1


Disposable cameras have quickly become one of my favourite ways to document memories and everyday events. There is something really special about how you cannot see what you are taking and it is your future self that receives the result. It takes away the moment of going back to look at the photo as you would on a phone, getting the right angles or making sure everyone looks good. With disposable cameras and film, that entire 10 mins of taking photos are taken away from your moment, replaced with time actually having fun, rather than trying to convince everyone on social media just that. What I love about this spontaneous contraption is that you spend less time documenting the moment and more time enjoying the moment. Yes, 9 times out of 10 you don't look good in the photo, but 9 times out of 10 you don't look that good in real life. Having the 1 shot being the only photograph captures a more candid and natural image of whatever you are doing. This is my 4th disposable camera film roll, a camera which I told myself to take more pictures of my friends on rather than the trees (I do like that, but people are much more interesting to photograph on film in my opinion.) I've selected a few to put on this blog, I even made an Instagram dedicated to my disposable camera photos - you can see that here
For now, have a scroll through these photos of mine, I love every single one of them.
