Polaroid Automatic Land Camera 100, Fuji FP100-c

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers out there!

We started our celebration today with some Stan's Donuts.  Later we will have a picnic and visit a few shops my Dear Sweet Wife has been hoping to check out.

I gave my DSW a copy of Instant Love, a brand new book about Polaroid and instant photography.  I pre-ordered it months ago when Amanda Gilligan (one of the authors) posted about it in her blog Mocking Bird, and by luck it came just in time for Mother's Day.

My DSW has always been a fan of her SX-70 and lately her Fuji Instax Mini.  We just glanced through the new book and it seems to cover a lot of ground, we can't wait to start reading it in earnest.

Fuji's color pack film rendered the above donuts so nicely!  Its color is tough to beat in nice sunlight, and really knocks out the expired Spectra film I used last time around.

I think I should have compensated a bit for the parallax error since I was shooting so close.  I tried centering the plate in the composition, but since the viewfinder is on top of the camera the parallax error shifted the image downwards.

Oh well, the only solution is to practice more shooting with rangefinder/viewfinder cameras… Does that mean more donuts?
