I was given a Polaroid camera today. Lovely present. I haven’t used one of these things since the late 1990’s. I always found them very difficult to use, in that the viewfinder is tiny and far away from the lens, so trying to compose a picture is tricky, especially when photographing something close up.
With the photo below, what I saw through the viewfinder didn’t exactly match up with the final version. Still, it makes a nice B&W photo of a sleepy cat.
I had a lot of fun using the Polaroid camera, and will get the hang of it eventually. Pity the film is so expensive though.
I scanned the photos into my computer and fiddled around to create some different effects.
Does anyone else have a Polaroid? If so, do you use it regularly?
Any tips on how to get a decent exposure when using it outside?
