Large Format Photography

With some of the money I got for Christmas and the money I saved from working a million hours before I left school, I bought myself a large format camera and a fujifilm instant back (to clarify, this is NOT Instax film, it's the instant film Fujifilm makes for large format cameras [the FP series], though I do love instaxes!!). I take instant photos on my Hasselblad all the time and I LOVE them BUT it only comes out in a tiny 6x6cm square, and I want it to fill the whole frame. I have a cheap polaroid camera that does that but the pictures aren't nearly as nice and I don't have nearly as much control.

SO, I got this great deal on the camera and I'm so excited! I haven't scanned in everything yet but I'll do another post soon with medium and large format instants I've taken when I finish scanning.

For now, here are a few of the pictures I took with Mia to test out my camera yesterday :) This shoot had no concept and was purely for testing purposes since we didn't have much time, but we're going to plan out a shoot to do shortly :)

I hope you all had lovely holidays and a good new year!

  16. Those are absolutely amazing! The ones where she sits on the sofa and lays on the bed look like stills from a film or an advert. They are just so full of emotions.
