Day 1 – A hike with friends and a new (very old) camera

1-sarahjon112014New Year’s Resolution #6: I need to be a part of my own life, instead of just documenting others.

So, I am going to try a 365 day photo challenge, for the first time ever. Kind of scary, but exciting. I want to be more creative and have more fun with my photography, so maybe this challenge will help.

Arann gave me a Polaroid Automatic 250 Land Camera for Christmas and two boxes of polaroids. I was excited to use it, but scared I would break it because it didn’t come with a manual.

Today my long time friend, and fellow intern veteran (aka photo slave) from the early days, helped me figure out how to use it. One box of polaroids later and I think I am getting the hang of it.
