One of the things I love about photography and my journey through it thus far is that there is always more to discover. There are always more people just as passionate about the art as I am and there are always more communities out there too.
Recently I discovered one of those communities, a website called Snap It See It. A website entirely dedicated to instant photography! While poking around the site I discovered a giveaway they had had some months ago to win a copy of a book called Instant Love. It was a book that kept popping up in my suggestions from Amazon.com and after learning more about it I decided to purchase it.
So far through reading Instant Love, I’ve learned a lot about vintage Polaroid cameras, accessories and films as well as timeless photography tips. I’m still in the process of reading the book, so I won’t do a review on it just yet, but the smell of a new book when it arrived in the mail was amazing and I thought it only fitting that it should be my photo of the day on instant film!
I’ve also embarked on a photography project of my own in addition to the 365 project this year. I want to have classes to get the community involved in shooting with film and I’d love to put together an exhibition and a photography book of my own! I’ve also created a sister blog called Sprockets and Shutters just for photography, you can see the press release for the project and read more about my photography adventures there!
