As I have mentioned recently, I’m participating in the Shitty Camera Challenge over on the Twitter.

I purchased two still-in-the-box Kodak black and white disposable cameras on eBay for this. The film in these cameras expired in 2005.

I got the roll from what I’m calling Shitbox One back. I’m shocked. I had no idea how these had been stored for the last 15+ years. They could have been in the trunk of a car sitting in the dessert for all I knew. So with this camera, I took shots in different conditions just to gauge what I was dealing with. Some of those shots in low light did not work out. But the rest were amazing!

Now that I know where these things work best, I’ll be out shooting with Shitbox Two. Super excited.
