I am definitely six months late on this post, but who cares. This past summer, I carried a disposable camera in my purse everywhere I went. Starting in New York, I wanted to have a fun, tangible way to capture memories without the need for my digital camera. I will admit, I edited some of these digitally to correct the coloring (I got them developed at Walgreens). Carrying around a film camera certainly was entertaining, although I was very nervous to see the final result. I would love to try shooting film in my great uncle’s camera that I received after he passed away a few years ago or buying more polaroid film. Shooting film, even on a disposable, is such a unique process in that seeing your photos right away is not an option. If anyone has any disposable camera/film stock favorites I should try, please let me know!
Memories featured include:
- Central Park sightseeing
- Stopping for sweets at Laduree
- Washington Square Park
- Ferry Ride to State Island
- Crashing in our AirBnB
- Visiting Squaw Valley with new friends
- Shooting a couple session at Kiva Beach
I used a Fujifilm QuickSnap Flash 400 Disposable 35mm Camera that I bought at Walmart (if I can remember correctly).
