Fuji Instax mini 7s







 Above are a few examples of what i've shot so far on my fuji instax mini 7s. Just tryna get my head around the different settings to try and get the best lighting for the image so far and also note to self, unless shooting close, do not shoot in the shade as it will pretty much turn out black as the flash is only workable up to 2.6 meters! The puppy is so cute, it's called Max and is my sisters boyfriends, sweetest thing i've ever seen!

All in all the 7s is awesome and i would recommend it to anyone, especially for the satisfaction of getting that instant result and holding a print in your hand and the prints are so cute! roughly credit card size, but you can scan them ect (mine are scanned in with my printers scanner which is rubbish so if you enlarge them excuse the quality as i have yet to scan them in properly)

Excitement

So I saw on facebook from someone that tesco was doing a good deal on polaroid 300 cameras which can take instax mini film which is sooooooo much cheaper than the impossible project stuff i have to get for my polaroid 600 even though it is bigger i guess, anyways... i decided to look on amazon for what deals they did for the nstax mini 7s and found this beauty...


Perfect as it has some pink which i love! surprisingly i actually love the colour pink which some people may not expect but it was my cousins favourite colour and it holds memories of her for me which are comforting to have lots of pink things around me! so i found this on amazon £53!!! beating the price of tescos polaroid 300 which was £54.94 not by much but at least the instax mini 7s actually matches the film properly and it has pink!!


And above is the film i brought to go with it, 20 shoots for £12.08 cant get much better tbh! since the impossible project film i used to get came in a pack of 8 and was £15! and the price has probably gone up even more since i got it a while ago.

I'm planning to use this for my cousins wedding but i cant say why, it's going to be a surprise for them :D

I will also have my 'big' camera to take proper shots of the day in the morning and for the evening event as the photographer she has hired is only there for a few hours, so haven't done a wedding before so this will be interesting but at least there's a 'professional' there for some of the day. I'm sure the day will be beautiful!

Jubilympics

So I got given a summer project for uni which is a bit pointless since it counts for absolutely nothing but hey ho. The title for said project is 'Jubilympics' for obvious reasons and i decided to go down the Jubilee route and pretty much made my family have a BBQ but it turned out to be a really nice day and it was worth it just for that even if I didn't like any of the pictures! I took about 300 and only needed 6 so I was pretty confident I'd have at least something. So below are my 6 pictures of my interpretation of how my family celebrated the diamond jubilee from preparation to celebration...
