You may recall last summer I did the Disposable Camera Project, in an attempt to move away from the trigger happy snaps taken on my iPhone, to a more nostalgic, more “raw” form of photography. I enjoyed the project so much that I invested in an Instax camera, and since summer has rolled around again, I’ve decided to incorporate it into my next photography project.
Introducing… A Week In The Life: Instax Edition!
I’m not one to carry a camera with me usually. Even my mobile phone tends to be frequently low on battery, or have low storage space, so most days I just don’t take photos. The Instax camera comes out for special occasions. That’s just the way it is.
However, I’ve decided to change that this summer. For one week I will carry my Instax camera with me wherever I go – out with friends, to work, into the kitchen for a glass of water. I’ll be snapping moments here and there and sharing my favourites in a post at the end of the week.
One of my favourite memories of last year’s project was taking a photo of three of my friends on a woodland walk. As I looked through the tiny viewfinder and waited for everyone to stop giggling and decide on one pose for that one shot, I remember feeling that this was what I wanted all along – special moments that would only happen because I was doing the project. Who knows what will happen this time around!
Update: You can see the results of this project here.
