Just a few instants since 2014 started...
These images were quickly pulled from my instagram (http://instagram.com/annie__hall)
Since I usually grab the Instax 210 and/or the Nikon FM when I go out hiking or just personal events, I procrastinate at getting them digitized, though I just recently got myself an Epson V600 scanner!
Instax really needs a good amount of sunlight to get a good image. It didn't shine too well in the overcast bits of a park, so my friends and I drove up to the top of the hills, literally chasing light.
I think this is the first time I used the Instax 210 for an indoor event, at my dad's birthday party. Best to set the exposure to 'L' for "Lighter" to compensate for that direct flash + tiny aperture that usually darkens the background to a black oblivion. I also brought the Mamiya RB67 with polaroid back and some FP-3000B. The instant films were a big hit! Even the waiters commented on them.
I kept the negatives to scan later.
iPhone boxes are the perfect size for temporarily storing instant film. I'll need to scan all of these soon. I actually ordered some 3.5"x5" sheet protectors to assemble my own instant film album. :)
Update: Just received my 3x5" x 5" sheet protectors as I was writing this blog post!
