Woozers what a month this was, can I just say hands down I LOVE MY INstax! In an strange outcome that I wasn't expecting, it actually made me a little sad for old school polaroid whose film feels a step down from what fuji is doing with instax. Credit definitely has to be given to The impossible film guys, for purchasing the last polaroid factory in the World and giving back life to Polaroid film (Well the square 600 stuff anyway). The impossible project still has a little way to go before they perfect the original polaroid film formula - here's hoping they do, because I really love that square format and using old school polaroid cameras :)
So this month is the first one in the 2015 challenge that I've had both a polaroid and instax to share (super fun!). When I snapped my first Instax photo, I raced over to Ben and proclaimed a variety of weird things like, "look how crisp and colourful and bright it is!". Looking at my first ever Instax pic reminded me of how I remembered polaroid photos being, you know, back in the good old days :p Just to clarify too, the photo above wasn't my very first photo, it was taken by Ben on a night out together - cocktails anyone! My first photo I actually took in September so I thought I better not cheat and post it for October! (I share it at some stage though!)
The photo on the right is obviously The impossible film polaroid and on a whole that film really seems to struggle with warm tones, lack of detail and bright colour. I would of previously thought the camera had some fault to play but this is my third polaroid camera with the film so I feel pretty justifying in saying the faults lie with the film itself.
Will I continue to shot with my 600 Polaroid Camera? I still have a few frames left of my awesome skin borders (which I love btw!) and then a box of black and white to get through, Actually I'm super pumped for b&w - it may keep me on the polaroid train but my prediction is, Instax will sweep in for good - gulp! Bold words for sure but so far Instax is ticking all those happy fee boxes!
