Experimenting with a Polaroid 300 and Fujifilm Instax mini film
This has been one of shereenstrachan's and mine's latest experiments, but it's taken a lot of experimenting as we've found out… Shereen had bought 50 exposures back at the start of the year, and I'd say only about a hand full of photos have the correct exposure.
Above is a set of photos we took down at Aberdeen beach on a cloudy evening, and as you can see, the exposure on all is pretty much off.
The Polaroid 300 camera has 4 mode settings: Indoor + Dark, Cloudy + Shady, Fine, and Clear (the flash always goes off, regardless of how sunny it is or what mode is used). We’ve yet to really figure out what setting to use when, though with ISO 800 film, we’ve always been surprised by the results as our photos keep coming up a lot darker than we’re expecting. We’ve just ordered another 100 photos, so fingers crossed we will be getting better at it.
