Just a quick outfit post, today, by way of two of my instant film cameras (one of my polaroid cameras and my Fuji Instax Mini).
I finally finally bought some Impossible Project film for my Polaroid camera. It's very odd - there are less exposures, for starters, but it's also no longer 'instant'. It takes up to 40 minutes for a colour photo to fully develop and they're sensitive to light, now, so need to develop in a dark place. (Which is probably why there are the 'light leak' type effects on this shot as I didn't read the instructions first. Whoops. I rarely do). But despite being quite different it's great to still be able to use my polaroid camera. And I really love the soft tones.
I look pretty awkward in this photo! I hate flash photography so I'm always preparing to not blink. You can see how much more saturated the colours are in the Fuji Instax film. But I love the passport sized photos and the camera itself is so pretty. I haven't played with it enough, though, because of how expensive the film is.
Even with digital photography, I still find watching a picture develop in front of me (whether with an instant camera or in the dark room, though I've not done that for a long time) fascinating. I'm a bit sad I can't watch the polaroids develop with the Impossible Project film, though. But I'm grateful that it exists!
Anyone else still enjoy instant cameras? One of my goals is to use more film and take more photos of other things aside from myself. But it's been my goal for years, now...so we'll see if that happens.
