A few weeks ago I posted that I was doing a Disposable Camera Challenge while on vacation in New Mexico, so here are the results!
What do you guys think?! I was pretty happy with them! From a technical standpoint, it performs really well in direct sun and I really love the colors. There were a couple shots in the shade that came out really dark, so I would say that was the major weakness. I didn’t use the flash for any of these.
And artistically I would say this was a fun challenge! I felt a little silly using it, but man, it was convenient to just throw it in my handbag instead of carrying around my big heavy camera + lens(es). I think that was the biggest difference for me, actually. Not carrying the physical weight of my artistic tools took away some of the mental weight of thinking in photographer mode.
Will I use a disposable camera again? Maybe! I think it would be a great option for daytime outdoorsy adventures where you don’t want to bring expensive equipment or you need something waterproof. Does anyone else still buy disposable cameras for vacations? If not, how do you like to document your trips? I am curious, so leave a comment below!
