Last week we had the good fortune of making our way up to the Eastern Sierra's in California, where the sun is shinny, the wind is gusty and the mountains are majestic. The scenery was undescribably beautiful, and we had tons of fun taking lots and lots of pictures. (sorry to all those who follow on instagram for the photo overload).
We toted along our vintage Polaroid Land Camera and a couple packs of colour and b&w film. It was our first go at taking pictures with the camera, and I must say it was a constant source of excitement for me throughout the trip.
Every picture was a suprise waiting to be revealed. Once we got the hang of it, it was easy to use and captured a unique view of our adventures. After shooting a couple packs we experimented with shooting double exposure (see pics 2 and 8) which I am eager to try more of.
If you are a photography enthusiast or just love cool things, you should keep an eye out for one of these cameras at the thrift store. We bought ours for $8 and luckily the battery was still usable and the camera was in great condtion. We watched a couple of helpful tutorials that prepared us for using our Polaroid 430 Land Camera and gave some helpful tips on what kind of film to buy and how to replace a corroded battery.
Now I need a bigger camera bag! This camera is a must for summer road trips.
