Film Photo Album- Snapshots of Korea

Photography / Travel

On my recent trip to Korea, I bought along with me a couple of disposable film cameras and ”experiment” with some film photography. Although, I’m no pro when it comes to photography, I enjoy snapping away and am learning to practice and improve my skills in this little hobby of mine. I took my camera everywhere with me while on my trip, taking photos of the everyday and unique life of Korea. I was excited to see how my pictures would turn out and although the final results have been mixed (why didn’t I turn on the flash button??!….) it was great to hold physical copies of my own photos-  a feeling that is very special , a relic of my memory in Korea. Maybe I’m sounding a little too sentimental, but in a world where everything is instantaneous and photoshopped, sometimes it’s better to take time at what you’re looking at and see things in the raw state that it is. Looking at my photos, it evoked my memory on how I was feeling in that moment, be it walking down the side alleys of Busan to hanging around in the hip quarter of Hongdae in Seoul.  I definitely want to continue processing more film photos in the future and I may invest myself with a 35mm camera once I gain more confidence. But at the moment I’ll stick around with the disposable stuff . So please enjoy my photos and if you have any tips about photography, film or digital, it would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy!

  1. lovely photos! My only suggestion would be to stick to bright light or keep the flash on if it’s before sunrise/after sunset
