How to keep them little buggers from wasting your precious film? Multiple-exposure trickery!
This is just a quick tip, and may not be accessible to all cameras. Just letting you be aware of one great use for that multiple exposure switch on your camera.
Toy cameras, being the toys that they are are instantly appealing to kids. No shocker there. Unless you’ve lectured your kid on the value of a precious roll of film, taught him/her how to get at least a half even a quarter decent photo or your kid has a natural talent in photography, what you’re gonna get is shot after shot of the same thing.
I learned this trick when I once photographed my friend’s son, simply because he was a cute little thing. He got interested in my camera because of the colored flash and took it from me and snapped and snapped at me. But my camera was loaded with some of my precious film! and I am not keen on being photographed!
Just flip the multiple exposure switch whenever the kid demands he be able to press the shutter button and want to see some colored flash. Easy! Film wastage can go down to just one single frame.
