I would greatly appreciate it if you all could vote for me for Atlantic City Fashion Week’s Best Photographer! It only takes a second to vote, and you can even vote from multiple devices!
Thank you so much!
So it seems that I lost my focus with this project! I have a camera sitting waiting to get developed. At first I didn’t have money to get it done, then no time, then just forgot. I will be getting back to this though, I think I am having a creativity block in general!!
I figured I would post the bad ones first!
So through this project I am learning quite a few things. Shutters on disposable cameras snap pretty easily, leaving me with 7 black photos. Disposable cameras only focus from 3 feet away. You never know what CVS processing will do. Also, I think about what I would have done if I would have used my digital camera. Its pretty cool.
So I have started this project! Seems harder to make myself photograph something every day then I thought it would be. Also, I found out I need to be more careful with keeping a disposable camera in my purse, the button was snapped a few times. Photos wasted! Well I am going to keep trying my hardest! I hope they turn out well too!
I created this new blog for a new personal project that I came up with! Its pretty simple but I think that it will test my creativity and push it further. The premise of the project is that I will have one disposable camera a week. That is 27 exposures, for 7 days. If you divide that out that is about 3 shots a day. As this project goes on I might spread it out to 1 camera for 2 weeks to make it more of a challenge.
I came up with this project when I found 3 disposable cameras while I was packing to move out of college. These cameras had cheesy sayings at the bottom of all of the photos though. When I found these cameras I decided to use them to capture the last two days of my college experience. Only having a certain number of photos and not being able to see what the photo looks like, made me think a lot more before I snapped. Something pretty simple seemed a lot more complicated to me. On my last camera the last shot was the most important to me, it was hard to find a photo that was forth being the last.
I decided to make this a full personal project because even while shooting a party, I felt my creativity going wild! Having a simple camera, and limited amount of photos only left my creative to think about. It also slowed me down, I have to think way more before I snap the camera.
My goal is to take at least one photo a day. Of course it has to be a good one! I am going to see if I can get a CD made (from CVS or wherever of course) and then I will post majority of the photos on this blog. If I can’t get a CD there will be lovely scans of the 4x6 prints.
Lastly, I AM STARTING THIS TOMORROW!
