Fuji’s latest instant film camera, the Square SQ10, gets unboxed and road tested in a shoot with model Alina Lee aka Thumbelina in a pool and a jail. We show how the hybrid digital/ analogue camera works, see sample images, showcase the unique features of the camera, go over the pros and cons of the camera, and do our best to answer all your burning questions about the Fujifilm SQ10!
I’ve come to the conclusion that instant film is the ideal format for my photography – minimalist, strange, shot with “what you see is what you get” style lighting. These were shot with Fujifilm Instax Mini Monochrome Film – 10 Exposures on my Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Film Camera, and here’s a little tutorial from my YouTube on how to get the double exposure effect you see in Shasta’s image!
Welcome to another of my video series featuring creative things you can do with instant film! In this video I show you a technique for mark making on both Fuji Instax Mini and Impossible Project film alongside a few examples I shot with models Mckenzie Eckels and Kaila Stone.
If you enjoy this instant film video I encourage you to check out the other ones on my channel!
I have a full class on instant film techniques over on my Skillshare channel.
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!
Since my studio opened last month I’ve been able to film more tutorial and gear reviews – I especially enjoy harping on the beloved Fuji Instax Mini film and cameras. Here’s two recent videos covering different aspects of the analogue style!
From Wednesday. The scenario was, rather than my usual self-selection of camera subjects, we were thrust with 8 different people I’d never seen before and challenged with making interesting work. That was pretty darn exciting- but I understand now that’s the actual job of the professional portrait artist. “You have 5 minutes to make a good picture with this person you don’t know at all.” This was shot with my Fuji Neo Classic Instax Mini, in-camera double exposure. His name is Ned and that’s all I know!
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.
One of my favorite models, Amanda, with paint and illustration by Jamie Graden. The Polaroid camera came about from looking around Amanda’s apartment for retro props, it wasn’t until the next morning I had the thought that psychedelic droplets should spill out. Jamie and I get to do stuff of this nature about once a year but it’s always awesome. All the words on Amanda’s body are “love” in other languages. Print available on Etsy.
