| Film Photography | Toy Camera


Being and living the change that I wish to see around me is important to me. So today I making thoughts actions and ushering in my own sunshine with some unexpectedly exuberant photos that I took with a toy film camera in Porto.









Out of a roll of 24 exposures, just a handful came out but I am chuffed with them nonetheless.

Finding little ways to make ourselves smile is important in life. It's not selfish or self indulgent. It doesn't even need to cost any money! 

I used THIS camera.

  1. In the digital age, it seems so much more novel using film. I got a polaroid camera recently and I find I love the surprise of not really knowing how a shot might turn out. But it does seem hard to believe that just ten years ago, we didn't have any other options!
    xox,
    Cee

  2. there's something really special about film :) i grew up in a family where we had tins and tins of old photographs, i'd dive straight into them, asking questions about the strangers i never met (who were of course old family members).
    beautiful post as always, really cheered me up :')

  3. The super wide is my fav toy camera, I love how sturdy it is, how the colours of the photos always seem to be vibrant independent of film choice, I only wish it has a smaller f stop, or the ability to add on flash or do double expose. I always feel limited by the weather/lighting conditions when I want to use it (but that's also have the fun of toy cameras - ultra unpredictability!)

  7. Aww I am glad that it cheered you up a bit doll!


    I love old photos they feel so much more precious that digital images don't they? They are unpredictable and they have been touched by so many people we are connected to. Somehow this makes the connection with them every more deeper.

  8. I often think about how skilled film photographers are - the cost of an error can add up no? How they were so keenly trained by experience to understand light and all those other factors to capture something so confidently.


    I do love Polaroids - less keen on the imitations that lack the magic of the old film that Polaroid made so well.

  12. That's it, I have to take photography course this year. A short one at least, so that I can give my fancy camera a better use. Right now, I just point and shoot!

  15. This is exactly what I did here! It's just a toy plastic camera so I suppose there is little else I can do with the camera?
