Heading Back in Photographic History: Instant Film September 21 2016, 0 Comments

Instant film, now seeming like retro technology, is back and is in high demand. I have a Fujifilm Instax mini and absolutely love it. The image is not on your computer, on your phone, on your ipad. There is only one copy of it and that is what makes it special.

With digital technology and such improvements in image quality, why would we choose to use a tiny, hit or miss camera? There are a few reasons: the photo is instant, and there is no retouching, or deleting. It is a special moment in your pocket not one of 5,000 snapshots on your phone.

Each shot is about 70 cents depending on how you buy your film (I will typically buy a 20 or 40 pack and save some money by buying bulk) and the camera itself is only about 55 dollars.

Here at Lumiere Photo we can customize frames for multiple Instax snapshots! Start thinking about which shots you would want to put together in one frame and come on in and we’ll help you design it!

Here we like to say, “Free the Photo” and Polaroid and Fujifilm instant film cameras do just that. Maybe that’s why we love them so much.
