8 Fun Ideas for Instant Photography

The guys at COOPH are bringing us another list of cool photography DIY tips and this time they look at instant photography.

Here is the list of 8 ideas from this video:

  1. Panorama – we usually don’t think about a panorama that you physically connect but this is exactly what you can do with an instant camera.
  2. Pano sequence – shoot panorama but keep you subject moving across the shot with the same background.
  3. Pantone wall – use color gels to shoot different sequences in different colors.
  4. Double exposure – most instant camera has this feature – just take a nice picture of a texture (flowers, fabric etc.) and take a selfie or a portrait.
  5. Ghosting – you can use double exposure to create a ghost like effect with you subject.
  6. Kaleidoscope – connect 3 mirrors in a triangle and shoot through them.
  7. Old School hyper-lapse – snap and walk – its simple.
  8. 3D hero – make a pop up cut out from your printed image (Actually super cool).
  9. Bonus – portrait collage – shoot the same subject up close from different angles.
