Sometimes you just don’t want to deal with all the settings and buttons and who-zi-whats-its on a fancy digital camera.
That was me this weekend. So I decided to cut the clutter for a week or so. I bought a disposable camera. It has an amazingly simple TWO buttons, and one turney dial to advance the film.
There is no zoom. There is no choosing the depth of field. There is nothing at all advanced about it. When I take photos I don’t get to look at them and decide if I need another or not. I only have 27 exposure by which to express myself.
And for some reason this is all very freeing in a way. It’s not that I don’t love all my digital gear, but sometimes it all just gets a little… cumbersome I suppose would be the word. Once my 27 exposure run out I will pick the D90 back up and continue on the digital front, but I’m in no rush to get there.
