For a few years now I’ve been collecting vintage Polaroid cameras. I buy them at flea markets and clean them up, and every time it’s thrilling to test out a film, see if they still work, and how the photos turn out.
Every camera has its own little quirks. Some might add a bit of extra light, others might tint the photo, and others might be super sharp.
So far I own 9 vintage Polaroid cameras, but last year Daryl bought me an Instant Lab, which is a camera that allows you to expose images from your phone. That way I wouldn’t be full of regrets if I saw something lovely but didn’t have my camera on me.
So this year I bought a shiny metallic red foil film from the Impossible Project, and I’ve made a bunch of winter and Christmas photos to adorn our walls for the holidays. I love how they turned out and the red frame fits perfectly!
If you like to take one of a kind photos of special moments, I definitely recommend checking out your flea markets and picking up an old instant camera. It’s so fun and your memories will no longer be hidden on your phone.
