These are a small series that I have done using a Ins-tax camera, there wasn’t any real genre that I was going for, I just wanted to keep catching snapshots of my life and experiment around with landscapes and writing. Some of the polaroids have quite a good quality to them, where as some others haven’t so well. This could be because of having the flash on at the wrong timing. My next problem with using these is how to incorporate these with what I want to exhibit already. Furthermore, I have to see if I can try and make these work with my skateboard/shelf either from sticking these onto the board or creating some sort of bunting effect. The pictures being taken on this sort of film gives you that vintage era feeling, although looking at the subject matter you’ll soon realise that it’s current but not at first glance. As it being a point and shoot camera, it’s difficult to get the settings at the right time. You can see that some images below have had the right amount of light, with the shutter speed going at the correct pace. In others, you can see where the flash has been used when it wasn’t the right moment. To at times, where no flash was necessary but the photo could have been lightened just a touch. Unfortunately, I will not be able to crop or edit any of these, I was going to have the original polaroid at the exhibition, and have no doubt that they won’t be strong enough to use. The pictures below were meant to create some sort of emotion, as they are the more personal shots that have been captured. In the sense of that home aesthetic feeling where the audience can feel the energy in the pictures.
