Plastic Cameras: Toying with Creativity takes you through the imaginative and creative world of those small and seemingly unsophisticated plastic cameras. Yet, using them can be a real surprise in terms of both image quality and content.

These low-tech cameras can not only be fun but a way towards seeing the world in an entirely different perspective. The book covers both the good and quirkiness about them. In addition, you'll see that all sorts of special effects are possible with them - effects that are even easier to achieve than with the most sophisticated DSLR. Effects such as vignetting, multiple exposures, panoramas, close-ups, night photography, color, flash, problems and solutions, and so much more are discussed.
