Analog photography is a fun hobby, but it requires shelling out money for either a film or a disposable camera. If you're not quite ready to drop some cash for a camera, we suggest downloading apps that give your pictures a similar grainy, overexposed effect. Most of them are free, plus you don't have to wait for a few days for your photos to develop! Check out our faves below:
