5.0 out of 5 stars Instant 5 Stars 19 May 2012
By Di - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Most books on instant photography are technical and written by men, and Instant Love was such a refreshing read. Photography in a dying format is hard to find these days but with such exclusivity in the art form, I was worried the book would be pretentious and seem like a long blog post from the writers. It's not. It's a beautifully curated photography book on the technicality without belittling the reader. I'm sure if I took the time to find all the information online, I would but Instant Love is a reference book that saves me time, energy and inspires.

5.0 out of 5 stars I instantly loved this book 24 May 2012
By beckycat1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was really excited to get this book and it didn't disappoint. I think both newbies and established photographers will love it. For beginners there are great sections on each type of camera, film and instructions on use. For people already familiar with instant cameras I think they will enjoy the technical tips and the inspiring photos and stories.

I also have to say I love the physical nature of the book. It's a beautifully printed book that feels great in my hand. It's also the perfect size to slip into my purse and carry along.

Thank you, ladies for making such an amazing book and inspiring a new generation of instant photographers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring & useful 20 May 2012
By willow81 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It had never occurred to me that I might want to take instant photos myself, but I instinctively found myself 'one-clicking' to buy Instant Love having followed the authors' photo feeds on Instagram. Now that I've read the book I am bidding on cameras on eBay and I can't wait to experiment! This book will be a lovely companion for the journey. It is technically helpful without being inaccessible. There are many, many beautiful photos and a lovely section on how to creatively display your instant photos. For someone completely new to photography I found the chapters on lighting and composition particularly useful.

As an avid photographer, I enjoyed this book even though I have not held a Polaroid in years. Great overall feel to this book, the authors really know their topic. Appreciate the resources too.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm in love. 17 Aug 2012
By Slumming Angel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A beautiful, impassioned, concise and clearly written guide to photography--with great photos of the authors' own that will convince you you might find a visual style as compelling as theirs. Buyer beware: you'll end up taking lots of instant photographs and find yourself waiting impatiently for the authors to write another book on this subject. That's one test of a terrific book: you can't wait for the sequel.
