Must-Haves: Instax Mini 90

6 Dec

Must-Haves: Instax Mini 90

Recently Fujifilm released the retro-styled Instax Mini 90 which is a fun must-have we wouldn’t mind adding to our collection. While it uses the same film size as the cheaper Instax 50, it has a variety of lighting and shooting modes the 50 doesn’t. Features like double exposure, party mode, kids mode, landscape mode and more.

We’re really loving the 2-color vintage style packaging as well. The controls and shutter position may take a little while to get used too, but we’re sure you’ll have fun with this thing.

It’s available right now at a variety of places like Urban Outfitters andLomography at around $225, but Adorama seems to have the best price right now at $209.95. Get or gift yours today to your camera or polaroid lover!

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier on

These small clips from the 1970s show a glimpse into the secret life of Chicago nanny Vivian Maier as she documented the urban life around her in her off time. The Finding Vivian Maier documentary finally debuts today at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

We’ve covered info on Maier before, but if she’s unknown to you here’s a rundown. Vivian died in 2009 at the age 83. She spent most of her life as a nanny in Chicago and had a secret passion for photography and film. She never shared it with anyone and had few friends. After winning a bid for 30,000 of Maier’s negatives in a Chicago auction house in 2007, Jon Maloof realized the importance Vivian’s work. “Little by little, I realized that the work was great,” he says. “Maier should wedge right in with the best photographers of her time, such as Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Lisette Model and Helen Levitt.” Maloof has sent the last few years painstakingly archiving Maier’s work, putting on exhibitions around the world and filming the aforementioned documentary film.

Shae Detar Photography

We’re not sure how we haven’t heard of former model turned photographer Shae Detar before, but her personal painted photography blew us away. It’s whimsical and fun and just plain cool. Her other work for magazines and clothing companies is also inspiring. Shae grew up in Pennsylvania and New York and in her late teens started modeling and traveling the world. In the recent past she turned the camera on other subjects and has been telling her own beatifully style stories in film and paint ever since. She now spends most of her time in the Hollywood Hills with her musician husband Brett and Chinese Shar Pei rescue dog, Waylon, but can still be found in NYC from time to time.

Take a look a a sampling of some of our favorite images from Shae’s portfolio and personal work and be sure to check out Shae’s sites below.

Be sure to Contact Shae for your next fashion, editorial, or advertising shoot and while your at it buy a print!

Zipping Back The Mystery

Zipping Back The Mystery

To us, there’s nothing cooler than vintage cameras. Guangzhou Art Academy student, Hu Shaoming takes our love and turns it into art with these two beautiful zippered cameras from his Reconnecting Time series. He spent months cutting and revealing the magical working internal components and the results are clearly awesome.
