Helloooo fellow TeenUglies!
I know summer is practically over (Im trying not to cry, seriously) but there is still time left, and I figure what else is better to do than to document these precious few moments left in these hot summer months?
So its CAMERA TIME! I know I dont really want to lug around my Canon Rebel XSi because,
1. Its heavy
2. I dont wanna ruin it in case I drop it, and/or go to the beach and get it wet.
And also, Ive gotten so digital lately with blogs, iPhones, my Canon SLR, that I kinda want to go back in time to the more crude machines of memory catchers. Yes, I know. Crazy. Its also sort of awesome because you dont know what will come out until you have them developed!
Sooooo here are two better alternatives than expensive digital cameras.
Kodak (kodak moment, YAY!) Disposable cameras are super easy, cheap, effective and fun, because you really dont know whats going to come out of the pictures you take. I recently started using them again after several years of not picking one up, and the first picture I took the camera just went click! and that was it. I was like “What? This little piece of plastic just took a picture? How did it look?! How did it look?!?”
I also recommend dropping it a few times to get cracks in the seams for light leaks and special colors like this. Not too hard, or from places up high, but just a few small drops I think could help. Thats at least what Ive done. Buy at your local drugstore- Approx. $7
Polaroid cameras have become sort of like a cult thing… like Napolean Dynamite or… Chuck Noris. I dont know. I think its because they went out of production… but guess what?! Theyre coming back in 2010. Anyways, when my cousin’s friend brought a Polaroid camera with her I kind of went insane and scoured ebay for one. My camera is actually a slim fast camera, which is kind of weird, but I love it! Mine came with expired film, which means the colors are all tricked out and stuff. Cheya! Buy at ebay.com- $27, with expired film
Do you have any favorite cameras for the summer time?
Stay tuned for Part 2, where I show you my developed film from both my disposable and polaroid cameras!
