Do I have a surprise for you today! No you are not seeing a re-blog from last week, but more so a continuation. For those that missed that post Clink on the link to get a refresher. A Tell-Tale Heart
Having bought a Land Camera 450 not to long ago, I've only had a small number of opportunities to really test it out. That said, to be honest I have been kinda selfish as to who would be photographed on instant film, and even then I would only take a few shots.
As far as the experience, there is nothing like being able to see your photograph in a matter of mins. I would also like to add that this type of instant gratification is not the same as the one that one gets from view their photo on the back of an LCD screen. Note that I said photo... there is a sense of completion when it comes to holding one's photograph in your hands. I would even go as far as saying that no photo is truly complete until it is printed.
Lastly, you might be wondering as to the purpose of the state of my scans. Personally I wanted to capture the realism when it came to instant film, that meant dust, scratches and all. I mean did you really clean your parents photographs before looking at them? Putting your fingerprints on them? No... you handled them like they were nobodies business. Alright, thats it for now. Like always make sure to check back in, more posts to come!
