Not Quite Instant

Over the last month I've refined the idea of adding 'instant' photos to my Dooney Lives series.

Instead of using a camera designed for instant film, I prefer taking photos with a digital camera or smartphone. I print them as instant photographs using an early version of the Impossible Instant Lab. The final result looks like a Polaroid but the approach allows more freedom.

For now, I'm collecting images and making mock-up examples of how they'll fit with the series. I share some of them on Twitter or Instagram (I'm using each social media platform as a kind of diary). When I've earned enough money to buy film
I'll print them – only one instant photograph of each image.
