If you know me, you know I love love love film photography! It’s so unpredictable, fun, nostalgic and full of character. Every time I develop my films after a trip. I feel like a little kid opening her Christmas present, excited to find out what’s inside the package. Haha! This collection of 35 mm film photography in Vietnam documents my solo travel adventures in Ho Chi Minh and Dalat.
I used my $14 dollar Kodak disposable camera to take all these photos. Though I’ve moved on to my Nikon Zoom Touch now, I’m still pretty amazed at how great these photos turned out. Some photos were kind of grainy and dark, but I actually don’t mind it at all. So I think there’s no need to buy expensive film cameras. Unless the quality of your photos is absolutely crucial to you. And there are also tons of cheap vintage film cameras on eBay if you want to be more environmentally friendly.
Even though my adventure in Vietnam was relatively short, I truly had the time of my life. I met solo travelers from all around the world. And we found tons of hidden gems as we explored the country in our rented scooters. Vietnam’s beauty was indescribable. There were many times during my trip that I had to pause and really take the time to express my gratitude. All these photos that I took on my cheap disposable camera represented the moments during my travel where I felt peaceful yet at the same time overwhelmed by the beauty around me. I don’t know if that makes any sense at all, lol. But I’m glad that I was able to document these moments. So that I can look back once in a while to reminisce on those traveling days.
I hope you enjoyed my 35 mm film photography in Vietnam! And maybe these photos will inspire you to visit Vietnam in the near future. Lastly, for more travel inspiration, make sure to check out:
