Ayn 10 12 17032 tones spotted sharpened 400x526 Ayn In An Instant

I did a shoot last week to work more seriously with my new “Frankencamera” that shoots Fuji Mini film, but has a proper, sharp lens that can be focused manually and that give me total manual control of the exposure.

Another thing I wanted to explore more is the new black and white film that Fuji has for the Instax Mini. That’s what these photos were taken with. It’s no where near the amazing quality of the discontinued Fuji 3000 peel-apart film that I love so much, but at least it gives me an option for shooting black and white instant photos.

The Instax format is inherently a soft focus process, so I know I’ll never be able to get the kind of sharp, crisp photos that I could get with Fuji 3000, but I’m going to try to learn to work within the limitations of this new film. I really don’t have a choice if I want to keep making instant black and white photos.

I also shot a pack of Fuji 3000 from the few that remain in my stash. I’m shooting peel-apart film with my Mamiya Universal camera that gives me complete control over focus and exposure. The photo below was shot with that camera.

And I shot some color Instax Mini film in the Frankencamera. That film does pretty well too.

And, finally, I shot some color Fuji 100 film in the Mamiya. I’m really going to miss the peel-apart film when my stash is all gone.

Thanks, Ayn, for doing a great job of working in the slow process of instant photography.
