Instant fun with filters

17Jan13

Anyone straying near my Flickr stream will know that I am enjoying instant photography at the moment. I have played with the Impossible film with my SX-70 and am in total love with my Instax mini camera.

Yesterday I tried to take pictures in the winter wonderland near work. The snow is so bright it overexposes the 800 ISO film in the Instax.

So I then started tinkering last night with a neutral density filter that Polaroid used to pack inside their film packs for the SX-70. I presume this allowed them to use 600 ISO film in a camera designed for 100 ISO film.

I’ve got two approaches, one is a filter over the lens and the other is a filter I’ve fitted to the film pack.Ā

I’ll try them out at lunchtime in the same bright light and see what happens šŸ™‚
