Last summer I had an idea that had to do with disposable cameras. I bought a waterproof one when I went white water rafting, and the ball kept rolling from there. I finished up that roll of film at the beach and a lake, and I was obsessed with the developed results.
This is where my idea came into play. I decided to buy another disposable camera (not waterproof this time, unfortunately) and mess around with it a bit.
This is how it works: Basically, I take my disposable camera to any “fun” event or get-together that I think will hold memorable opportunities for photos. Here’s the catch – at the event, I only take one or two photos with the camera. This way, the photos accumulate over time. By the time the roll of film is full, I’ve forgotten what all is on there. Finally, when I develop the roll, I can rediscover random memories from the past month or so.
And I’m not stopping with one! I currently have another one in progress and one more that I will use once I fill up my current camera. This is why the blog post is called the “Disposable Film Project”. I am planning on shooting more with regular film cameras and obviously I will still shoot digital, but there’s just something about disposable 35mm cameras that I just love.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. 🙂
