My first experiences with the "Fuji Instax mini 7s":http://shop.lomography.com/go/?where=shop&cat=Instant_Products came earlier this week when I (I'm the guy in a black shirt) headed off into the city with some friends to a karaoke bar. When I took the camera out of my bag they at first did not think much of it. After a few photos they were all hooked!

Watching the photos develop from pure whites to actual pictures is a real blast, and it happens in your hand as well! We had some a lot of fun singing songs and taking photos.

There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
