Oxford: Fuji instant pack film

Written by Nasir Hamid on May 25th, 2012

These images are from earlier today. The first two were made during my lunch break, the other two were made near the University boathouses. The summer eights rowing competition is on at the moment so I went over to the boathouses after work to photograph anyone that caught my attention but I’m sorry to say that I didn’t manage to do much photography. The buzz that was there last year seemed to be missing which I found quite disappointing.

[Tech info:] I used a sliding Polaroid back on my Mamiya RB67 to shoot two frames on each sheet of Fuji instant pack film. I really enjoy thinking of two shots that will work together and it’s a shame I can’t shoot a roll of film like this.

Tailors in Little Clarendon Street. These guys are always sharply dressed which makes them very photogenic.

Triumph on St. Giles. I was rushing to make this shot and didn't notice the Polaroid back wasn't pushed all the way to the left. I hope I get to photograph this car again.

    Love this effect.
    Ever since I started looking at your pictures I’m so much more attentive on the streets of Oxford and keep noticing people I’m sure you’d love to photograph!
