Our Children with Their Polaroid Barbie

We're continuing our experiment with analog photography. This time we gave our children a Polaroid Barbie.

Kids were amazed. They were watching the film developed within 30 minutes. "Is it done yet?"
When it's done they yelled "It's magical! It looks like we're capturing our life in papers!"

Seems the kids enjoying the experiment & 8 exposures per pack is not enough for them. Though the result is good, they want to explore more with another activities, light and colors.
"Can we have another pack for our Polaroid?"

One pack at a time, kids :D

Food Photography With Polaroid: The Analog Experience

We're doing it not for good result. But merely for an experience.
The experience when we're unplugged from digital mega pixels, digital filters - that mimics vintage look - and digital instant result.

Food photography with Polaroid 2 Color is powerful. It is stimulating, healing, soothing and fun. And I choose to wake up to these beauties every morning. #ditutgreensmoothies #simplegreensmoothies
Left: analog. Right: digital.

The experience of capturing the other reality, not 'real' reality or what-you-see-is-what-you-get reality.
The experience of process.
The experience of failure.

Food photography with Polaroid 1 Kiwi Nectarine Mint Green Smoothie. So refreshing & energizing! #ditutgreensmoothies #simplegreensmoothies

The experience when we watch the light & chemical developed before our eyes.
And the experience of the little celebration when we see the unique interesting result.
