Disposable Camera Day

Disposable goodness

The first Sunday of each December is Disposable Camera Day (DCD)*.

We’re going to take part this year by having the first CorkAP DCD on Sunday Dec 5th. Plan is to meet outside Brown Thomas on Patrick St. in Cork at 10am armed with a disposable camera. After standing around, complaining about the weather and general chit chat, we’ll split for an hour or so, and wander round taking most excellent disposable pictures of the city. Then at about 11.30am- 12noon we’ll meet up again for coffee and some grub, and discuss the adventure of trying to capture the city in 36 frames through crappy plastic lens. Some creative seeing will be required! Hopefully there’ll be a 1 hour photo open and willing to process the film (we’re making calls to the few 1hr centers left). If there is, then the photos could be collected after lunch and another rendevouz to sit around and discuss the results. I imagine a couple of pints might be consumed during this process!

If this sounds like fun, then why not get involved? We would be flattered if film loving people in Cork would like to join us for the day**. All you need is a disposable camera and some nice cosy duds (it will be December after all!).

 

Drop a comment below if you think you would like to get involved!

 

If you’re reading this somewhere outside Cork, then why not join in anyway, and organise a day out where you live with a bunch of disposable friends πŸ™‚

You can also post your favourite images from the day on the Disposable Camera Day 2010 flickr group –Β http://www.flickr.com/groups/dcd2010/

Will try and post more details about the 1hr photo situation and somewhere to have coffee afterwards closer to the date. Hope to see you there!

* erm,Β OK, this is the first Disposable Camera Day. But hereafter it will take place on the first Sunday in December!

** We would also like to extend the invitation to people who might like to join our group. Cork Analogue Photographers was set up in 2008 by a bunch of people who met at the excellent photography night class in the Crawford College of Art and Design between 2006 to 2008. We have felt our way along this far, and now would love to know if there are film loving photographers based in and around Cork who might like to get involved. We thought that a Disposable Camera Day would be a good way to meet like minded people, have a laugh, and shoot some film πŸ™‚
