Polaroid OneStep 2 Unboxing

So initially I didn’t have any immediate plans to get the new camera from Polaroid Originals assuming that it would have been a few hundred and probably out of stock for a while.  I dropped by Salt Kakaako to check out Hungry Ear Records for some new music.   On the way out I did my typical stop in at Treehouse to say hi, low and behold the new Polaroid was on display.  To make it even more tempting, the price wasn’t excessive like I had expected it to be.   In total this will still end up costing a pretty penny, but this new camera uses cheaper packs of film thanks to the battery being removed.  This price drop for i-type film is even more noticeable when you count the extra few dollars discounted once Polaroid Originals became official and not just Impossible film.

 

The camera will have a difficult time indoors without the use of flash but I still felt the need to test how it would be.  I also have to remember to make sure I’m a few feet back for the focus to be accurate.   I’ll be taking it out more when I do some outdoor shoots and if I can find enough light indoors too.   I’m generally not very comfortable with direct flash but maybe this is something I’ll have to get used to for using this camera.

 

 

All Day I Dream About Pizza

I managed to get a small gig shooting some products for a local skate brand. All Day I Dream About Pizza had a few shirts and pins to display.  This was the first time I got to shoot products for someone and the general theme kind of lined up with how I normally shoot anyway.   more “All Day I Dream About Pizza”

Instant film Cat Party

Going out for casual walks with a cute friend is great, I get some fresh air and nice afternoon light to play around with while we take photos.   I really enjoy doing them, but I had a taste of what could be  some #catlyfegoals and that involves staying home. more “Instant film Cat Party”
