Got my first polaroid camera

5 February 2014

Hooray, I bought my first Polaroid camera! Old school polaroids, I love it! I really like the mysterious touch on the pictures which were made with those polaroid camera's. It gives you that old school vibe. They don't make those camera's anymore, but a Dutch company called: Impossible still make those films. Films do you put in the camera's, it's a battery and they're instant photo's. They're a bit pricey, they cost like 22 euros (24 dollars) for 1 package which contains 8 pictures. So that's 2,50 for one picture. The type of my camera is: Polaroid 636. The second picture is the box with the film in it. As you can see is it a film for the 600 type camera's which I have. Impossible created some cool types which you can use: black and white, color, silver and more.

You can't shoot pictures like you do on a digital camera. You can't see, or delete the picture before they print. It just comes right away when you take a picture. So you have to check everything before you shoot, the lighting the position - everything. Or you can shoot a lot, but it costs you a lot of money. And you don't know if the photo's will look the same as you expected. I think it's a big challenge, to start with this type of photography.

If you have some tips for me, leave a message down below!
