These are the shots from my second Kodak disposable black and white camera that I shot for the Shitty Camera Challenge. The first camera was amazing. This one, not so much.

Some of the pictures were alright and a little editing made them salvageable, to a point. Take the header pic. I dig it, though it wasn’t what I was expecting after shooting the other camera.

But when things went wrong, they went very wrong. And then got worse, which I didn’t know was possible. Light leaks, over exposed, under exposed, and small patches NOT exposed. All in the same shot. WTF?

Was this camera stored in a running clothes dryer?

So yeah. I will say that I loved shooting with these. No settings, no tricks, no frills. Just frame the best shot you can and take the picture. There are new disposables out there, with better film loaded in them. I’m going to have to buy a few.
