Lomography Monday: polaroid one step

This is the cheapest Polaroid camera we've ever bought but it's as awesome as the others in our constantly growing collection. We found it in a local thift shop for $0.99! It's in a really good shape, it has flash and everything works.

The Polaroid One Step is a point and shoot camera. This means that it doesn’t have a focusing wheel and it has a built in flash. It also has a distance switch: you can set different focus if you take a picture of an object far from you or close. Only two options. I haven't used the close-up setting, so I can't comment on that. I just don't shoot close-ups with Polaroids.. All you need to do in order to take a picture is to push the button with your finger. It is extremely easy to use, it even might be the easiest camera to use. :-) You can shut the front side of this camera to protect the lens when not in use and to prevent it from taking pictures while in a bag - I really love this feature. Actually, this is what I like about most of my Polaroids - they collapse, shut down, slide up and such and such. Little robots! :-)

We used expired film from the Impossible Project - it created some leaks and color lines. Pretty cool anyways. For some reason I like leaks on Polaroid film, it reminds me that there's always some chance factor in this kind of photography.

I'll probably disappear for a couple of days while I'll be travelling back to Idaho. I'll try to post to instagram and twitter on the way. But when I finally get home there will be so many new awesome posts eeee! really excited to share everything with you! Have a great week!

The polaroid is such a classic and takes me back to when I was in junior high. I remember when I took pictures of my junior high crush and saved it in my little friends album haha!
