Jumping on the instax bandwagon + gpoyw

Yay, this little guy is so fun and cute. It's more so a toy than a camera, but I'm happy to add it to the camera collection (even though it is quiite hipster). The first pack was pretty much used up in crappy indoor light just to test it out and for kicks. I think this will be really great to bring on vacations and such.

1) Teddeh and me; 2) Jimmy in NOT a suit and looking rather child-like, hah; 3) Macarons from Bisous Ciao; 4) Newest batch of peonies (man they really have a short lifespan!); 5) Final GPOYW - so washed out!

Tomorrow I'm having an extra exciting lunch. It will require getting off the island... hope to share soon! :D

  6. What a sweet post. Polaroids got so much warmth in them. You're making me want to buy one.

  7. Love the Instax! :) I have one and it's definitely a fun camera to take pics with, the instant gratification as shots slide out of the camera is my favorite.

  8. Love! I just received the instax mini for mothers day...after the boys shot off the first pack, i did a little test of my own...and i think i'll be reserving this bad boy for landscapes, lol. But fun none-the-less!

  9. hehe, fun! figures that peonies and macarons would be involved. i tend to shoot at the next level, to reduce the wash-out. play, right?

    that lunch sounds nice. enjoy!

    did you use the camera flash to shoot or just the indoor light?? I think they look really nice!! <3

  12. I just got an Instax Wide, and I'm having trouble using it! It doesn't seem to reflect what I see in the viewfinder! Any advice? I'm looking forward to bringing it with me to San Francisco next week, but I'm just worried I don't know how to use it!

  15. I like these... didn't even know any of these (polaroid instant) kinds of cameras survived the digital era. And in a different (non-square) format.

  19. Jimmy has a face!!!!

    Just now going back through your blog for the past month of posts I've missed. Instead of commenting after each, let me summarize:

    1) I gained 10lbs just reading
    2) Licking the monitor does not a good substitute for actual eating make.
    3) Abraco needs to be afraid. Very afraid.
    4) Congrats on getting the biz going. Yay!!

  20. We have one of these, they're so much fun!
    We bought it and 8 packs of film on sale, and I think we have a pack or so left. Actually pretty good when you consider there's 8 people in the family.

  22. Hi Alice,

    May I know what type of scanner you are using to scan the polaroids and films?

    Thanks.

  23. @tango, I use an epson v500 photo scanner. It's not the greatest but it gets the job done and it's cheap!
