Toy Camera Photography is a style of photography that uses toy cameras to capture unique and creative images.
Toy cameras are cheap, small cameras that have been around since the 1960s.
They’re often made out of plastic or metal and have limited functionality compared to traditional digital SLRs or point-and-shoot cameras.
Toy camera photos can be taken with any type of camera but they’re most commonly associated with toy models like those listed below:
- Diana F+ (aka Diana II),
- Lomo LC-A.
Choosing the Right Toy Camera
Toy cameras come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs.
When choosing a toy camera, there are several factors you should consider:
How many photos do I want to take?
If you’re planning on taking only a few shots per week or month, then an inexpensive point-and-shoot might be all that’s necessary.
However, if you plan on shooting more frequently (or even professionally), then investing in something with higher quality may be necessary–especially if the images will be printed large-scale or used for publication purposes.
How much am I willing to spend?
Typically speaking, higher price tags mean better quality;
however this isn’t always true when considering vintage cameras versus modern ones made by different manufacturers using similar technology but different materials (e.g., plastic vs metal).
In addition, some models offer more features than others which could also affect their cost depending on what features they include such as automatic focus modes or built-in flash units which require batteries instead of being powered by light itself like most Polaroid cameras were designed before digital photography became popularized during late 1990s/early 2000s when people started using them less often due their high maintenance costs associated with repairing broken parts inside these old machines’ bodies after long periods without use.”

Developing and Printing Toy Camera Images
After you’ve taken your photos, it’s time to develop and print them.
If you’re using a toy camera, this process can be as simple as dropping off your film at the local drugstore or having it mailed directly to you.
Once the images are developed, they’ll need to be scanned into your computer so that they can be edited and manipulated (if necessary).
You can either use a flatbed scanner or use software such as Photoshop Elements or Lightroom CC on MacOS X 10.12 Sierra 10.12.6 with Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core 2GHz processor with 16GB DDR4 RAM 1TB HDD; 256GB SSD for photo editing software if there isn’t one built into your computer already–but both options require some technical knowledge on how these programs work in order for them not only do what we want them too but also not destroy our files along the way!
Toy Camera Photography – Wrap Up
Toy camera photography is a great way to experiment and have fun with your camera.
You don’t need expensive equipment, only a sense of adventure and the willingness to try something new.
The key points discussed in this article include:
Keep it simple–the more complicated you make things, the harder they will be!
Experiment with different angles, lighting conditions and perspectives.
Use filters on your lens if you want to create an effect similar to those seen in toy cameras such as Lomography cameras (see Resources).
The best thing about toy camera photography is that there are no rules!
There’s nothing stopping you from trying out new things every time you pick up your camera; just remember that it takes practice before getting good results so don’t give up too soon!
