Fuji Instax in Freezer

Tungsten Effect!

Once, the Polaroid effects under development were amazing. The emulsions used originally give you awesome results.

Finally, after a period of consideration I decided to buy a Fuji Instax Mini 7S, and so my curiosity was immediately set in motion.

I tried it immediately with a lighter or a clip for laundry pressing, but what I got was not that great. The best results appeared this morning after a night in the freezer!

After taking a photo, I immediately nestled into the freezer and let them rest for 24 hours.

This morning I decided to take it out and lay it on the table. After a few minutes it immediately activated development!

The result is a more satisfactory Tungsten effect!


Try it yourself!

To be sure I put it in comparison to a photo taken with a Lomography Tungsten film 64 and it seems quite similar!
