Spastic, energized, opportunistic

“I’m proud that I’ve been taking a lot of pictures this summer. I’m in such a creative place, and I really wanted myself to be. I’m going to make an online scrapbook for all the photos, and I’m also doing a summer vlog and recording as much footage as I can to start my own YouTube channel. I’m really excited about it!

One thing that put me off about photography is that I was so scared to carry my Nikon everywhere, because I paid a lot of money for it. But disposable cameras give me the effect I want. I like saturated photos and grain; I have two disposables with me right now, actually.”
