I woke up one day feeling desperate to take random photographs outside of the studio. It used to be my old habit. I used to carry my camera with me wherever I go.
So on this particular day, I didn’t have my camera with me. It was sitting at home, while I was on the bus, desperate to get off and go on an adventure. I bought an Ilford single use camera with a HP5 film ready to use. I got over-excited.
The next day, while attempting to remove the film from the camera, I ended up disassembling the whole camera. That was fun.
I developed the roll of film with Adonal 1:50 at 20 degrees as usual and voilà… you’ve probably guessed it. Most of the images were either underexposed or overexposed because there is no way you can adjust shutter speed or aperture with a single use camera.
Developing the film with Adonal was a pretty bad idea too, because not only you get under/overexposed images, you get large grains on top of it.
I don’t normally post bad photographs on my blog or flickr, but I think I should let you all know what could happen if you try to do the same.
By the way, do not attempt to open the camera to get the film out if you do not have any previous darkroom experience. You will get electrocuted.
I am not joking.
