Today, we live in a world where almost everything comes and goes in an instant. Although film is in essence a more relaxed and unhurried photographic medium, it also has something to offer for those who want a quick analogue fix--like our very own 'instant' Amigos!
It’s understandable how some people are enamored with film, but are looking for something a little more speedy. With this in mind, Lomography came up with two nifty gears that should be in every instant photography fan’s analogue arsenal: the Lomo LC-A Instant Back+ and Diana Instant Back+!
Photos by Matt Schwartz, who shoots with the Lomo LC-A+ with Instant Back+. Working with instant photos and instant photo transfers, he describes his creative process as:
“I take instants, pull apart the film and then rub the negative onto water color paper. It gives all of my images a softness. This technique gives my voice as a photographer a microphone. I’m not sure if I’m screaming in it or whispering. Maybe a little of both.”
Photos by Natalie Callwood, a freelance photographer from Canada who says she found her true love in instant photography. Her love for instants has even led her to publish her own book on Polaroid photography! She shoots with the Lomo LC-A+ with Instant Back+, which she describes in five words as “Fast-Reliable-Amazing-Fun-Romantic!”
Photos by Zara Martin, a London-based TV presenter, actress, and model, who confesses that she bought her Diana F+ “in a jealous fit after seeing a friend’s amazing Lomography images.” Shooting with the Diana and Instant Back+, must have gained her a lot of stares from curious onlookers, aside from the handsome guy who had the hots for her camera!
Photos by Nagata Takeshi and Monno Kazue, the brilliant minds behind the mesmerizing PikaPika project, taken using the Diana F+ and Instant Back+. Artfully and skillfully using colorful light paintings in their project, the creative duo was able to create an animated masterpiece that brought Instax photos to life!
