What does that have to do with these photos? Well, a lot actually. Without my digital camera, I still needed to shoot a photo for the day. I have a few cameras to choose from, but I think my favorite film camera right now is my Polaroid 103. I use Fuji pull apart film and I love it. I can totally see the Fuji colors that I remember from shooting 35mm.
It’s big and takes me forever to set up a shot.
What is that thing?
Why can’t I see the photo on the back of the camera?
What are you pulling out of there?
WHY are you ripping that picture apart?
But then the magic of the film lures them in and they love it.
I like that my kids are being exposed to words, “film”, “develop”, and “not so instant, instant photography” But mostly, that I can share this part of photographic history with them, too.
**Update! just got my camera and lens back. Good as new, and although a little bit costly, not nearly as much as buying a new 1.4!
