 I know it's been a while. But today I'm showing you something I'm exited about. because last week I shot my Polaroid photos. finally 2 years after buying my camera. I remember buying it for only 2 euros at a Finnish flea market. I couldn't believe the price. and a little more than a year later my friends gave my a film pack for my birth day, these things are 25 euros for 8 photos, damn... That's why I waited so long to use them. I was afraid to waste them.
The battery is included in the package, and the battery that was in the package that came with the camera was empty, so I think its formal owner thought the camera was broken but the battery just ran out. In that package was still one overexposed failed photo that I used for a little project.
when they come out of the camera, the photos are blue, like completely blue. And you have to hide them away from light for a few minutes. Then they develop and lose their blueness. And you have your Polaroid pic. I love the colors, light leaks, spots and these edges, the upside one is blue at most photos. I even like them being a bit unsharp, because you can't focus with a Polaroid camera, you can only slide a close-up lens in front of the lens.
I really like talking about vintage cameras, but I'll leave it at this for today. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
ps. this is so much cooler than the effects on instagram. It's the real deal

  1. I just found your blog! I love the polaroids, very cool! I also shoot with film, but I use a Canon Tx. A polaroid would be a nice addition to my collection! Your pictures are beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration!
