The thrill of expecting the unexpected
I have always loved the unexpected results from getting your disposable films developed. Few things beat that feeling of holding those frozen kodak moments in your hand for the first time and scanning the results. But of course, when one is on the road there is unfortunately often that logistic part to consider. You want to save as much valuable backpack space as possible and so carrying extra luxuries like disposable cameras are not ideal.
Fast forward to Gudak - an app that turns your phone into a disposable camera.
Point, Shoot... And wait.
Quite the contrast to our modern way of taking photos, with umpteen takes to reach picture perfect, it is rather refreshing to use Gudak. Once your roll of 24 frames is finished, you have to wait 72 hours before the film will be developed and appear in your phone's camera roll. No previews, just ceasing the moment!
It took me well over a year from the moment I read of the app at Katarina's blog Äntligen Vilse to actually try it out for myself. Now I have just finished my second roll.
Let's have a look at some of the stuff that has been going on the past two months, as through the app. As you can see, the results vary greatly, both with light and quality.
