This lovely thing was sitting at my door step yesterday, and I nearly screamed with joy because I have been so impatient to put it together. I definitely jumped the gun with all my excitement. Little did I know that I was about to jump into a project that I felt like tearing my hair out; good thing I didn’t. So to give everyone a heads up before purchasing this little plastic camera, just be prepared to spend at least 3-5 hours trying to figure out what goes where, even with the directions. I completed it in 3 hours last night, but realized I screwed up at the most important spot(the shutter), which took me another 2 hours to try and fix.
It is times like these when I am trying to build something that I need a boyfriend, but once I figured it out, I felt kind of proud of myself for trying to fix the problem instead of being like “screw this plastic thing”. After building this mini twin lens plastic camera, I defienitely have a new found respect for photography. I have always loved and admired photography and the people behind the amazing pictures, but after doing this little project, I definitely want to put more effort into what I take. There are way too many people out there that think they take great pictures because they own a camera; think again. Everyone should try putting this thing together before calling themselves a photographer, it gives you an idea of what is really behind or inside the functions of a camera.
