Hello 2017

This is just a short post to say that my blog is still alive and welcome to 2017. I will be back to post more updates soon with what I've been doing. In the meantime, I realised that I've been using instant film and cameras for 10 years! I still love this format of photography as much as the first time I opened my newly purchased SX-70 camera in 2007. One of the many things you learn when you shoot instant film is that you need to dispense with any ideals of perfection because it doesn't exist in this realm. While I've grappled with "getting things right" it's dawned on me that there is no such thing. In its place I've discovered something else, the magic to create little other worlds that exist in this medium, an alchemy in the film that creates beautiful imperfections that you can't predict.
