Digital photography and having the possibility to shoot thousands of pictures with no loss is nice. It allows you to try out many different shots to see which one works best. But when it comes to analogue photography, that’s when the real magic starts to happen. You start to consciously think about what motives you want to photograph, which places could offer best lighting and surrounding and which effects you would like to achieve on your pictures. It’s not like pressing the camera trigger and then seeing how the picture turned out afterwards. It is imagining what the picture would look like if you pressed the button and then deciding if that’s what you want, before actually taking a photograph. And of course with analogue photography you’ll get to hold something in your hands afterwards. It’s not just pixels on a screen. It’s just a whole new level of photography.
Over the last couple of days I’ve been playing around with one of Fujifilm’s instant cameras. It’s the Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic. What can I say, I’ve been really getting into it. There’s just such a cool, retro vibe about it and it makes you get even more creative. You’re constantly hunting for that perfect shot. I was having such a great time really.
This camera has such cool features, which makes experimenting around even more fun. It has several different settings, going from macro to landscape. If that’s not enough creativity for you, there’s a setting for double exposure and even bulb exposure is possible. How cool is that? Never seen those settings on instant cameras before. To top if all off, this babe has a self-timer integrated. Yes, that’s right. An instant camera with a self-timer mode. No more words needed.
I thought I’d show you how my firs tries turned out because I enjoy the results just as much as I enjoyed the time I spent taking them. Definetly won’t be the last one’s you’ll see tho. I’ve already got so many new ideas what I’d like to shoot (and too little time realize all them all at a time, as usual). I’m excited to see where the analogue photography journey will take me and i can nooot wait!
