A couple of months ago, Bianca and I took our new Instax Mini 90’s out on the town for a fun lil project with Fujifilm.
If you didn’t already know, Instax Mini cameras are instant (read: Instax), itty bitty (read: mini) cameras that dispense memories in the form of (instant) polaroids. Oftentimes, when you’re relying solely on iPhone snaps, you take moments for granted – as you’re usually taking pictures that just accumulate in your camera roll/act as another puzzle piece to your curated Instagram feed. And while this could go for any analogue medium, taking polaroid pictures automatically give you something tangible to flip through; and further to that, the results are inherently self-gratifying (even when you mess up your shot!)
Ever since celebrating my graduation last May (and gifting myself with the wonder that is the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8), I’ve been snapping polaroid pix pretty avidly – documenting everything from vacations to birthdays to basic nothing days. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve seen my regular recordings of new polaroid snaps (whether it be a round-up of pictures from a trip or *that* ubiquitous polaroid wall looming over the side of my bed); and thus, you know that the aforementioned testimonial is very #true and very #accurate.
