Manipulating Instant Mini

Yet very different from Polaroid chemicals, Fuji Instax still leave a space for manipulation.

Sometimes we get the really cool pics with more or less expected results. But sometimes it goes the wrong way. For example, the Instax paper is stuck inside the Instant Back and then pulled out with the other paper, sometimes the result is overexposed, sometimes the chemicals that trigger the development process are not rolled evenly (usually it happens when the sheet is rolled out of the back), sometimes we can develop it in the fridge (to get cold colors) or holding it in front of the yellow or other trippy light (to get warm colors) or just heating it a bit when developing. All those unconventional attempts leads to really surprising and (sometimes) interesting results.

Herein attached some irregular results rolled out of my instant back – have fun watching, would be fun if you could share some of yours – I am sure you have a few in your pocket :)

    Editing pictures with image manipulation software or a mobile app is not unheard of. An alienation of photos by needle and thread, on the other hand, is an intricate process. Los Angeles-based artist and photographer Diane Meyer has gained instant fame for her embroidered analog photos. In this interview, she talks about adding a new dimension to pictures as well as her source of inspiration and other projects.

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Sunrise in the Desert

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
