polaroid, instant film, film, polaroid 600

It's been a while since I shared any film photos. It's really just been a while since I shot any film at all. That's how it seems to go with me. I shoot it obsessively, and almost exclusively for a period of time then I kind of forget about it. Well, I'm back in the swing of things. I've been breaking my back carrying around both of my Polaroid cameras, the 600 and my land camera, along with a myriad of other camera gear. Normally the land camera is my favorite but I'm pretty darn stoked about what I've been capturing with my Polaroid 600 and some Impossible Project color frame film. Plus the color frame is so fun I just had to share what I've been shooting lately.

The one in the lime green frame, from Mount Moriah Cemetery, is one of my favorites. Who am I kidding? I REALLY love all of these. If I were someone who believe in ghosts you're darn right I'd be claiming "ORBS!".  I love that the film got all funky. It couldn't have done that to a more fitting photo. It looks super mystical. I rather enjoy when something like that happens to my instant film. The shot of Cleveland? I feel like that little splotch in the corner makes the photo all the more interesting.

Ehhh, don't mind me. Instant film just gets me all excited. I know compared to my fancy pants digital camera these photos are absolutely awful but there's just something so special about instant photos, something that can't be replicated. I love touching them. I can't even tell you how many times I've looked through these eleven photos in the past few days. The film is definitely expensive but it is so worth it.

Pssst.  If you're interested in instant photography, be sure to check out this post featuring four different instant cameras you can still buy film for today!
You can find  more of my film photos under the "film" tag.

  1. Polaroid film is the best! I think the little imperfections make the photo so interesting. I have a land camera and I just adore it. I haven't used it in a while but I am hoping to break it out more this spring.

  2. These are so good!

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. If I were someone who believe in ghosts you're darn right I'd be claiming "ORBS!" XD
    I love seeing websites where they track all the "orbs" in photos of old haunted buildings. I always wonder if it really even occurs to them that they are just dust. Seriously. I love the photos though, they do look pretty spooky with the polaroids!

  4. These are so cute. I love the colorful frames!

  5. Beautiful shots! The place in the last one looks amazing; I'd love to see inside!
