This is my favorite Polaroid picture I’ve taken so far; it’s of my sister and her boyfriend during the summer when they took me out of the home so I’ll stop being a depressed hermit, but I digress.
He hadn’t slept for close to two days because of work, so he dozed off as soon as it started to rain. I ran and focused in on the two of them - they thought I went to get pictures of the water - and it ended up being an intimate moment of the two of them I’ll never forget. The background is slightly off focus, giving the two of them the spotlight in front of my camera. It was exhilarating to see as soon as the image developed.
I haven’t had the opportunity to purchase more film, but I hope to go out and take more soon. I get an adrenaline rush feeling the pressure of taking the best shot on the first try since reckless shutter hungry fingers never do any good for film.
Then again, shutter hungry was what got me this picture. Ironic.
