Lee reached out and shared with me an awesome blog post about exploring Shanghai with an Instax Mini and I knew had to share it with everyone. Lee was kind enough to to share a few favorite images and tell me a little bit more about the project.
When I bought my better half a Fuji Instax Mini 9 camera for Christmas one year, I didn’t imagine I’d be using it for a film photography project of my own. The inspiration to do so hit me from somewhere though and I ended up doing exactly that.

The concept was simple. To go to some of my favourite spots in Shanghai, make an Instax photo of them, and then grab a picture on my phone of the Instax photo in front of the landmark.
So I planned my locations and the order I’d get to them in, bought a pack each of colour and monochrome film to add some variety, and shot the ‘Shanghai in an Instant’ project.You can see how it turned out along with my thoughts on doing your own instant photography project in this post on my blog.
