Experimenting with disposables

When I was a kid, I had several disposable cameras and would snap away unbothered by angles, lighting, positioning, and the endless list of other photographic points I often consider before taking a shot with my digital camera these days. Reminiscing over this carefree approach to taking pictures in my childhood, I decided to bring along a disposable camera with me on a camping trip with my mum, in the hope that I would freely take some photos.


This photo was instantly one of my favourites as soon as I got the developed prints back. Experimenting with a different tool to capture a moment meant that I approached the trip with a different attitude, and I think loosening up my way of looking at photography for that one trip created photos which truly captured the happiness of our weekend away.

This post is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge.
