[slightly obsessed with all things polaroid]
My love for polaroid cameras started early on in my life, it was the first working camera that was mine & mine alone. I proclaimed at around age 10 that I wanted a real camera, so my dad, being a cautious consumer, decided to buy me my first Polaroid camera (thanks dad! ♥). I think his decision was half based on knowing my young attention span wouldn't last long enough to wait for film to be developed & maybe half thinking it was just a passing phase & polaroids were relatively inexpensive - that is until you take into account all the film (& oh boy! did my 10 year old self blow through some film). I remember taking it to the zoo on multiple occasions & pretending to be a nature photographer, my brother even taught me how to position the lens in between the fences so I didn't get the cage in the shot - ha! Long story short - an obsession was born...I have a nice little collection of working polaroid cameras & camera backs but am always looking to expand! I've always been a fan of the Polaroid Land Camera - the one with rainbow racing stripes, it's actually one I don't have in my collection (yet)! Here are some fun polaroid items to get you obsessed too (if you're not already)...
*my fav* polaroid Iphone decal
*these are fun!* instant photo caption kit
& last but not least - impossible project instant film
long live instant film!!!
I'm off to finish up some orders & maybe to sit outside (in the beautiful weather) to sketch & plan some new designs! Happy Tuesday! hugs & cheek pecks.
