Shooting New

I shot with one of my new cameras today.

Learn more about the Polaroid Spectra 2 HERE.

I used this FILM that I purchased on a rode trip from this STORE.

I was so nervous. I didn't want to make mistakes, I didn't want to waist the film. I even consulted with a friend, who is a photography genius. She left me with this quote, "If it catches your eye, don't pass it by."

That was exactly what I needed. So I threw fear out the door and took the leap.

"Shooting "new" was amazing; trekking around looking for colors, moments, still, peace, beauty.

I haven't shot a Polaroid in over 25 years. There are some amazing Instant film photographers out there. To be honest, although I was blown away by the beauty of their art, I didn't totally get it, until today.

I got where their excitement, drive, and polaroid passion came from when that little piece of hand/eye-designed-art landed into the palm of my hand.
Then the creamy colors began to form inside of the dark cool case I brought along with me...

The result...

creamy deliciousness.

peace, love, and passion!


  1. so excited for you...i love that you have fallen in love with instant film, it has been a love of mine for a long time :)

  2. I haven't seen instant film in ages, but I love the pictures you took. That tree is so cool. I bet you're going to have a blast with this!

    Also, I wanted to thank you for your kind words about the loss of my dog. I really appreciated them.

  3. What a very cool shot you got there. I think it would be so gratifying working with a polaroid!

  4. "If it catches your eye, don't pass it by." I love this quote. I am so happy to see you utilizing your creativity in new ways, and facing that fear and nervousness head on. You've inspired me in more ways than you know. Love you.
