2014… Instant Photos

Well I have taken a while to get out of holiday mode! But I am back now. I received a Fujifilm Instax camera for Christmas so, naturally, my blog today is about it. I love the magic of clicking the shutter, seeing the photo spit out and then watching as the image develops before your eyes. It has re-ignited my desire to set up my own dark room; ink printed on paper really just isn’t anything compared to a chemical reaction on paper, in my opinion. For now I will settle for my new Instax but watch this space because I have picked up some old 50cent cameras from the local recycling store and intend to get them going and see what they can do. Here are some of my instant snaps:

Instant cameras have been around from as early and 1923. Polaroid, formerly the most popular brand for instant photos, discontinued film production in 2008. Now Polaroid makes instant digital cameras (like the Polaroid Z340 & Z2300W) which instantly print digital images. According to wiki, ‘ fujifilm is now the only remaining supplier of instant film in the United States’  and I for one hope they keep it up.
