Instax and Impossible at Burning Man

I shot some Instax Wide and Impossible film at Burning Man this year.    I left the Land camera home at the last second.   (I brought too many cameras anyway).

Last year I started doing a project using an idea I borrowed off a Seattle guy whose pictures I saw on Instagram.   I meant to do lots more of these, but only managed a few.  😦
I really like the idea of including a portrait of the person but showing the details of their hands and clothing.

For the Impossible film, Kate sold me some pre-production “poor packs” she got from Impossible.   Some failed, but many turned out just fine.   Their texture made them some of my favorite photos of the event.

I wish I had more than a pack & a half of this stuff.  Next year, I’ll bring a bunch, despite the cost of Impossible film.

  1. I really like the Instax Wide compositions! The details of people at Burning Man are always interesting as well. I’m surprised at how clean some of their hands are, haha!

    I saw lots of disposable cameras this year! I wish I had brought along more myself because I really wanted to leave one tied up someplace for people to shoot photos and come back to claim later. I can def identify with taking along too many cameras & not enough film. Wish I had run into you at Burning Man!! Perhaps another year 🙂 I always like to keep my eyes open for other people shooting with film!
