instant love

So, if you haven't already heard, instant photography is definitely not dead.  Three ladies, whom many of you familiar with instant photography will recognize, put together a book entitled Instant Love.  For years, I have been following the awesome works of Susannah Conway, Amanda Gilligan, and Jenifer Altman and believe that these ladies have made a huge contribution to the world of instant photography by sharing their love for this photo medium and getting others excited about it as well.  Now, especially with the creation of integral film by the Impossible Project, people are dusting off their old Polaroid cameras and bringing them back to life again.  The book is a guide to the different types of cameras and film used in instant photography, but it's also a guide on basic elements to photography such as composition and lighting.  Below is a book trailer that was put together by the folks over at Pacing the Panic Room.  Have fun watching!  Oh, and they're having an awesome contest by the way!    


  1. It looks good...I shall order one for me...aaaah you make me to spend all my mullahs! HAHAHAH!

    1. Ha ha! I know it's terrible! Instead of
      buying new clothes, or new shoes, I
      buy books. Doesn't help that I work
      in a bookstore either. ;D

  2. Great post Kat. Photography isn't just digital, it's whatever you want it to be! If you are looking for a great Polaroid book... have a look for 'The Polaroid Book - Selections from the Polaroid Collections of Photography'. It's published by Taschen and i got my copy for about $14. It has LOADS of great Polaroid photography in it :) Inspirational stuff.

    1. Hey Rich! ONE DAY, I'll be brave
      enough to make my own pinhole
      camera! Ha ha! I have been
      trying to get a copy of
      "The Polaroid Book" but it hasn't
      been easy. Seems the stock in the
      US sells out rather quickly. I
      haven't tried purchasing it thru
      Amazon. Maybe that's a start!

  3. Thanks for the kind words, Kat. :)

    1. No Amanda, thank YOU for sharing your
      talents and putting together this book
      for us! I love it! :)


Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
