A couple weeks ago, I saw a post on IARTU about a big project by The 100 to invite everyone to shoot 24 exposures on a disposable camera in a week. Well, if this isn’t the very kind of quirky project that I love to take on. So, for a week, I carried around a little green disposable camera pulling it out when the moment was right. I loved feeling like I was on an 7th grad field trip to the natural science museum all-week-long.
Quite a few of my photos came out underexposed (because apparently disposable cameras don’t do well indoors and without flash), but it did have a few advantages over my camera. It was quick on the draw. I loved that I could point and shoot so quickly that nothing had a chance to change before I got my shot. I liked that my focus was on composition, with no ability to adjust aperture or focal length. It was all about what I saw.
