Disposable cameras are making a come back!! Not really, but here are some awesome ways to take creative shots.
Much to our surprise, this trick will also often force the shutter open to make a double exposure!
The process is simple:
Too shy to ask strangers if you can take their picture?
Bingo! We have a disposable camera solution.
Tie your disposable camera to a park bench!
Leave shooting directions for anyone who finds it, and return later to inspect the results!
So, if you tape your disposables together just right, you can use them to make a whole roll of 3D pictures for under $15!
We’ve got a full step-by-step tutorial on how-to practice this method right over here!
You can also make your own flash filters by taping cellophane, colored wrappers, waxed paper, or any other experimental material to your flash!
Another easy option? Color over your flash with a permanent marker!
Because disposable camera lenses are so small, its easy to make DIY filters on the cheap.
Try using colored marker on packing tape, coloring directly onto your lens, using your sunglasses or soda pop bottles, or holding a prism in front of the camera!
(We made this image with a blue filter over the lens to make everything in the picture super-duper blue.)
We’ve always known that our fisheye cell phone lenses are champs at transforming phone pix, but we recently discovered how well they work on disposable cameras as well!
Stick the magnetic ring to your disposable’s lens, and attach the fisheye to your disposable anytime you want to take an awesome fisheye photo on film!
Try leaving your disposable in the freezer, the hottest place you can find, or even poking tiny holes in your camera to intentionally cause light leaks!
Looking for more fun film damaging ideas? The damaged film group on flickr has got ya covered.
*Make sure to let your photo lab know that your film is wet. They’re going to need to dry it out before they develop it. Thanks for the tip, Alysoun!
This dreamy photo (by Thomas Anderson) was made by scratching up the edges of a disposable lens with a hot screwdriver!
Other fun methods you can try: Scratching your lens with steel wool or sandpaper, melting your lens with a hot tool, painting over it with nail polish, or even taking it off and flipping it around backwards!
Head over to Disposable Distortion to see more scratched, melted, painted on, and broken lens results!
We’re totally inspired by Matthew McVickar’sdisposable camera project.
He packed up his camera with special instructions for mail carriers to take pics with it along the way, then developed the results!
