Us photographers love our expensive gear that features the best quality in optics, autofocus, sensor design, and more and offers us the utmost control of every last setting. So, could you take a shooting challenge with the lowest quality camera and absolutely no control over any settings? Check out this fun disposable camera challenge.
Coming to you from our friends over at Mango Street, this neat video follows them as they take the disposable camera challenge. These cameras have waned in popularity quite a bit with the rise of digital and smartphones, but back in the 1980s and 1990s, you couldn't go to any popular vacation spot or social gathering without seeing tons of them in the hands of tourists and family members. They were super convenient, as you simply took the pictures without setting anything at all (except for turning on the flash if you thought you needed it), and when you had gone through the roll of film, you simply dropped the camera off at your local photo mat and came back a few days later to your prints. For a photographer, it sounds like a nightmare, though, which is what makes this challenge so interesting and fun. Check out the video above to see how it went!
