Hello everyone! I am so excited to share this post with you because I have been working on it for so long!
Okay, so you should already be aware (if you are a regular reader) that I love photography! And, if you have been keeping up lately (with posts such as Polaroid Project and Polaroid Preview) , you would also know that I recently expressed my interest to the kind folks working behind The Impossible Project that are trying to fully revive Polaroid instant cameras. These folks thought that me sharing my prints on Sophie Says was a great idea and sent me film to play around with! Here are a few of my insant pictures as well as a story to go along with them:
What I love the most about The Impossible Project is its accessibility. Right from the main website there is a link to a gallery of photographs where you can be inspired by other photo junkies and a link to the shop where you can buy any of a variety of Polaroid cameras and as much Impossible film as your heart desires! Disclaimer: if you are anything like me, this website may never leave the open tabs on your phone or computer!
I have been reading about this project since around May of last year (and suggest that you should, too!) and have completely fallen in love with this team of photographers and their strive to save one of the most popular types of photography ever. The determination of these people and their care for Polaroid really speaks with how much progress they've made over the past few years.
Since my Impossible Film arrived in the mail, I have taken my Polaroid camera everywhere I have gone because, although my Polaroid camera is probably my most bulky camera, Polaroid photographs have always been about catching life in the moment and having instantaneous results. I think I have been having way too much fun with these instant little beauties!
P.S. I have plenty more fun instant pictures to share! Stay tuned to see little snapshots of my life!
I wear many hats. I like to call myself a painter, a film maker, a photographer, a blogger, a sewer, a craft maker, a designer, an illustrator, and an inspirer. I do not know exactly what I want out of life yet, but I sure do know how to live it.
be inspired to be an original.
