Instax Model Shoots #2 featuring Lux, aka Luxbot Lacheln, Lux Tango etc. I’ve worked with Lux more than any other model since 2011 and we always have a great time shooting instant film. The camera used for all of these shots is the Fuji Instax Mini Neo Classic 90.
More fun stuff you can do with instax mini and other intant film! I show you some model photography samples I’ve done with the Fuji instax mini monochrome film on my Fuji Neo Classic Mini 90 and with the new Fuji square instax shot on the SQ10. You’ll see some of the historical Polaroid film collage work created by famed art photographer David Hockney and we also talk about a few tips to get better results if you want to try your hand at collage work. Models include Cacia Zoo, Ana Corbi, Alana Schoen, Sparksss and Lillie Monster.
I wanted to post a few recent images I did with dancer/ stuntwoman Alana Schoen in LA. Probably my favorite styling to work with is a black turtleneck and leggings; I’ve done it many times with many different models and it always comes out with a super clean design that appeals to me.
All images shot with th eFuji X-T2, 35mm lens, LED lighting.
I’ve put together a little formula for how I’ve conducted my recent shoots, which is: some video, which takes a while to compile/ edit/ do fx + sound for etc., and then some instant film shots, which are already done the moment they come out of the camera. This seems to satisfy the need for immediate results while giving me something to work on for the next couple months.
It’s fascinating how sometimes the work that gets the best response is the stuff that’s simplest or easiest or quickest to create like this. These were shot with the Fujifilm Instax Mini Monochrome Film, my new go-t0 creative tool for stills!
On my youtube channel I have a couple video tutorial/ reviews of the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Film Camera…
…and the new monochrome film I use to make these!
Shot with model Trish Davis in February, 2015. This particular shoot I focused mostly on instax and filming a video with the model, but I made sure to squeeze in a few traditional shots with my Fuji X-T1. The cat climbing to the top of the chair was complete random happenstance that really elevated this photo for me.
If you enjoy any of this work I encourage you to like it and share it! For more photoworks goodness peruse my Etsy shop, follow on tumblr and twitter and instagram, and rummage around on my full site.
