Film Friday - 10

The first three photos are taken with a Holga. I love how soft the Holga's plastic lens makes everything look. It also has great vignetting. 

The next five photos were taken with a medium format camera that I had bought at an estate sale a couple months ago. It's called a Snappy and looks exactly like a Diana. The Snappy is another toy camera like the Holga.

The final four photos were taken with a very old black & white Konica disposable camera that I had bought at Garage Sale Bonanza back in the summer. Konica, which merged with Minolta in 2003, was actually around even before Kodak. Unfortunately they got out of the photography business in 2006.

Film can be frustrating, and expensive, and just sort of annoying to shoot with; but I would recommend trying it. You don't have to be a great photographer or even a photographer at all. Just pick up a cheap camera at the thrift store, or buy a disposable camera if your grocery store still sells them. And then the next time you pull out your phone to take a picture of your friends, your food, or whatever else; take a film photo as well. 

Photos taken with a Holga, using Ilford FP4 Plus film; a Snappy, using Kodak Ektar 100 film; and a Konica single use camera.
