Thanks for all your comments yesterday about why instant film feels so much like capturing a memory -- I loved reading them, and I think you're all right: there's something about the built-in imperfections of film, coupled with the inability to take several shots in succession that make the "instant in time" captured so much more authentic. I think the camera's going to help make me a more circumspect photographer.
Which, of course, is all good.
Yesterday, some friends came to spend the afternoon, and I decided to take my duaflex out for a spin. I wanted to see if I could recreate the feel of old time photographs, by getting them to pose without smiling, and then processing the final results to a sepia tone. The kids were willing subjects.
But sometimes it was hard to keep them from laughing.
