Somehow New York Fashion Week has crept upon us again.
Shows are set to begin next week, which means everyone in the business is preparing to put their best foot forward in the capacity in which they work. For many of you who attend shows or just enjoy the street style, a camera phone is your greatest instrument.
But what about trying a instant camera?
Polaroid Socialmatic Camera, $299
Vintage Polaroid 600 Camera Kit By Impossible Project, $180
For the past seven years or so, there’s been a strong embrace of polaroid-style instant cameras that produce the film immediately. No longer is our generation holding GBs of data in their phone memory or heading to the drugstore to print film. It can now be done within seconds, from your camera device.
The old has renewed in the form of one or two step options that give an immediate return. Yes, the fancy SLR allows for a series of stylistic options, but there’s something raw about an unedited image in your hand.
And for Fashion Week, there’s nothing better than this unique option– see what we found on the next pages.
Photo Shoot & Fashion Show Tips
"Relaxed and elegant hands usually make for a better photo. Try to avoid placing your hands in positions or angles that will make them look like a "claw" in a still frame."
