But then they dive into the actual process of instant photography, which was interesting and quirky. Peppered with glorious examples from their own work, they provide clear instructions on how to get great shots with instant cameras, and how to handle the randomness of the art type. I quite enjoyed that.
One other note: instant photography is not cheap. On a modest budget, it might be prohibitively expensive. The authors assume a wealthy bias, and advise the reader to shoot shoot shoot (which is needed for practice, I understand), but I couldn't help but flinch at how costly that must end up - especially with most film being rare and hard to find.
The final quarter of the book deals with various projects for displaying and protecting your pictures once taken. Not up my alley, but good info for craftier folk. Topped off with an extensive resources section, to boot. All in all, a quick read and a good resource itself.
