Last week, the legendary Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera celebrated its 50th birthday. Debuting in 1972, the camera represented instant photography at its finest—and it remains well-loved to this day, with a cult following.
To celebrate the Land Camera’s anniversary, this week’s Photos of the Day theme is an ode to all things instant, so prepare to put a retro spin on your submissions!
This week’s theme
We want to see your best shots made on instant film. Whether you’re team Instax or team Polaroid; square, rectangle, mini, or 4×5, show us shots of whatever makes you happy! After all, instant film is all about fun.
Maybe fun for you is heading to the racetrack to shoot a Formula Drift event, or maybe it’s shooting a rare, nearly extinct instant format. Whatever it is, we encourage you to embrace the spontaneity and imperfections of instant film and get creative.
