We are today starting our first photography challenge in the blog: The Instax Challenge. We are always afraid of joining daily photography challenges because the pessimistic bug in me can’t stand the idea of not delivering enough interesting shots or losing one day. I know lots of people tell you how it doesn’t matter if you lose one day, but I know that my head would explode with guilt, ha! But since there are lots of good things you can get from a challenge we thought we could make a good compromise and start a monthly challenge using our Instax camera.
We will deliver one picture taken with our Instax wide for each month of the year during this 2015, a brand total of 12. Looks easy right? Not so sure, because since we got the camera in 2012 (not counting our wedding guest album) we have only finished one film pack, a shamefully bad mark, don’t you think?
That’s why our goals with this challenge are the following:
- Use our Instax wide camera. That’s the most obvious one ;)
- Learn how to use it. We know the basics but as photography nuts know until you haven’t struggled with its pros and cons you don’t know your camera.
- Take the camera on our adventures. This camera has never seen the light of the day, crazy right? And I have a feeling that the outside has to be its forte.
- Have fun creating our instax wall art!
Truth is that this post was about to be called the Polaroid challenge, but during last post photo session we realized that our beloved Polaroid 1000 camera is not working anymore. It had a film loaded for months but I didn’t know it could damage the camera, maybe it wasn’t this at all, but now we have changed the film for a brand new one and still not making a peep. However we were planning on using both cameras on the challenge before knowing the sad news, so the Instax is now left alone in it, I’m sure she will feel good being the queen.
And now the important stuff, do you own an Instax camera? Would you like to join? We are publishing each photo also on IG with the hashtag #instaxchallenge2015 so feel free to join us on your blog, IG or Facebook!
