Keep Film Alive! Capture your Summer the Old-School Way

Think back to summer camp when you were a child. Chances are your mom had stuck a few disposable cameras in your backpack and sent you on your way. You didn’t think twice before pushing the shutter button, and when the week was over, you couldn’t wait to get home and have your pictures developed so you could see what you actually shot and relive those magical moments. That was the norm. That was how people took pictures. You had hard copy images you could hold in your hand, and chances are, you kinda loved it.

But in this day and age, of course things have advanced, including film, disposable and instant cameras, and accessories, so your film experience will be anything but old news!
