Our latest feature is a beautiful portrait series from film photographer Sarah Proctor created with double exposures on the Instax Mini. Here is more from Sarah about shooting portraits with instant film…
I had my Instax Mini 90 for several years before I tried it for double exposures. When I first got it, I used it to capture snapshots with friends but never explored all of its features. When I began shooting 35mm film, the hardest part was waiting to get my scans back from the lab. One day while I was (impatiently) waiting for my scans, I decided to shoot some instant film and discovered that there was an actual double exposure mode!
It took some practice (and an unfortunate amount of wasted Instax film.. RIP my wallet) before I felt like I got the hang of them, but, once I did, I was in love. I really enjoy incorporating flowers in my portraits and instant film is no exception. It’s also one of my favorite ways to capture self portraits now.
Whenever I’m waiting on film scans or want to give the dying flowers on my kitchen counter a new purpose, I bust out my little Instax Mini 90 and shoot some doubles.
