In the middle of capturing a series of mornings with my Polaroid Spectra, I had several realizations about myself as a photographer.
One, I don’t like having so little control over a camera.
Two, waiting 30 plus (our house is cold) minutes for one instant photo to develop is a challenge.
Three, shooting indoors with winter sunlight can be a lovely thing.
Four, I still love instant film (I just wish it were cheaper).
Five, limitations push me creatively.
Six, photographing with instant film is like making crepes, there’s always going to be a throwaway.
Seven, I like to capture story fragments in photographs.
Eight, shooting more is a good thing.
Nine, follow a creative thread to the end.
Ten, repeat the process another day, the conditions/results will change.
What things have you learned about yourself as a photographer?
