You guys might already be aware of my love for disposable cameras. I don’t know if it’s the crummy, low resolution aspect of picture taking or if it’s my nostalgia for the 90s that’s got me head over heels. It’s silly, I know. And it’s getting more and more absurd (especially as a photographer) to carry one of these suckers around in an age when even the 8 year old who lives next door has a GoPro. Below are some of […]
