Instant Gratification

Japanese gardens at the Chicago Botanic Garden on Polaroid instant film

I am a smitten kitten! I have fallen madly, deeply, head over heels in love with my Polaroid camera. It’s a fairly automatic camera, which usually frustrates me. I like to have some input on the photos I create. But the sparkly fairy dust unicorn rainbow magic of the instant print has won me over and I am hooked. Not only do I get instant pretty prints like the one above (geek speak: Fuji 100c instant film at the Chicago Botanic Gardens) that I can scan and share with you, but some of the films give me a negative of sorts that makes for artsy craftsy scanning and play.

I cannot wait to play with the color film once the leaves start changing and the autumn colors are in full force! From henceforth, expect lots of instant film sharing here on the blog.
