Last year I decided I wanted to do something different with pictures. I bought 2 disposable cameras and decided that I would try to take more pictures on those to get some cool raw photos! I just think that it is so fun to take a picture and then have no clue how it will look until it is developed. No deleting and no knowing if you're even in the shot, just raw pictures of whatever you are lucky enough to capture!
I love looking at old photo albums where this was the normal and only way to take pictures! Where photos are "imperfect" and in the moment and you get what you get! You would only take a picture or two at a time so that you didn't waste film and it was was a big surprise with how it would turn out. Just something about them seems 100x more real than cell phone or digital camera pictures. They're filled with more raw emotion and they just seem more authentic to me. I had the intention of going through a whole camera each month of the year and well... I actually only used 1 the whole year and would take pictures whenever I remembered I had it in my purse! This year I plan to use more of these cameras (maybe not 1 a month, but maybe 1 every other month?)
I finally got them developed and it was fun to look back and remember these little moments in our lives. Whenever I would ask a stranger to take a picture with my disposable camera, they would always look kind of confused and you could tell they either had never seen one before or didn't think they still existed! haha I love how they turned out. Plenty of them are over and under exposed, half the time someone is slightly cut out, they're just fun and imperfect and exciting to me :)
I decided to call this my picture project because 1. alliteration and 2. I still have that zest and think it's the coolest thing! I love my digital camera, obviously, but this is just a fun way to keep up the raw and imperfect memories that I want to keep forever! Oh and if you didn't notice, YES I changed my design again haha (surprise, surprise) I really did love my old design but there were a few things I wanted to do with it that I couldn't quite get right! I've been looking for a super clean and fresh look and I was super glad to find it! Plus new look for 2016, why not!? Guys I am so excited for this year. Lots of exciting things to come :) We filmed a vlog this weekend so keep a lookout for that later this week!
