Plastic sun

From a disposable camera. I peeled the paper off the outside, you know, that had the instructions on it, and inside were more instructions with a different brand-name on it. Hmm. The lens had a much wider angle than I expected. It was nice to have such a small camera, with absolutely no settings to fiddle with before a shot. I've got two more of them, and I haven't decided if I'll use them myself or try this idea I had, of giving them to two friends and asking them to pass them on after they take one or two pictures, and so on, and sticking a label on them with my campus mailbox number, saying, return it to here when the roll is finished, and I would get it developed and see what all these strangers had seen.

I love the idea of seeing what strangers have seen using a disposable.
(the v for vendetta photo is my favorite)

Erin - that bench gets painted all the time; this was its Guy Fawkes Day outfit (but I suppose you guessed that).

I love that idea too! And these shots are really fantastic. What exactly did you do to the film?

Holly 11/13/2010 1:16 PM  

Danielle - gracias! but what do you mean, what did I do to it?

Q 11/13/2010 2:25 PM  

Ditto p.1 of Erin.

Jenica 11/13/2010 3:48 PM  

Yes! That is the best idea ever.

Danielle 11/13/2010 4:39 PM  

hmmm maybe I misinterpreted that-- it seemed like you did something to change the angle exposure.

Holly 11/13/2010 5:03 PM  

Danielle - the angle of the view? nah. it was just so wide in the viewfinder (and such a cheap camera), I didn't think it was accurate. was, though.

I like the "I'm a little teapot" shot.

Holly 11/14/2010 10:50 AM  

Kim - YAY I'm glad you noticed it.

Thanks, Edge. :)

Ahh, nice. I'm impressed with your skills with disposable cameras. You're a photo ninja.

Holly 11/15/2010 1:25 PM  

Danielle - hehe, thanks. my inspiration was this post from my sister's wedding photographer.
