I have a little project on the go. It all started a few weeks back when I posted about an idea to send a film camera to the people of Tumblr. I actually thought no one would be interested but instead I was a little overwhelmed and excited about how many people put their hand up.
Things are coming along nicely and I’m probably a fortnight (more or less) away from actually sending the camera to people. First I need to finish the list and fine tune another few bits. The plan is to send the camera with a list of 15 things to photo for around a fortnight at a time without being too rushed. I must admit, the camera isn’t stupidly simple to use. Well. It’s not hard but at the same time it’s not like using a disposable camera. You have to manually focus the lens and make sure the camera is metered correctly. It’s actually really easy but just means you have to slow down before pressing the trigger for a couple of seconds. I think the extra bit of effort is worth it as you can see in these photos others have taken with the camera.
So. Who is keen to go first? Ask me.
