In an Instant

Everyone loves being able to hold a photograph in their hands or see it in person and not on a screen. It’s even more awesome when you can see that photograph just minutes after taking it. I was late to the instant photo game. I missed the whole pack film craze and didn’t really care…

Unicolor C-41 Film Developing Kit

It’s been about 2 years since I last developed colour film at home. Although I’ve always been happy with the results, I could never fully get behind the extra time it took to setup and get the chemistry up to working temperature.

Toronto on Instax
